Monsanto said Wednesday it earned $1.21 billion or $2.24 per share in the quarter ended in February, compared with $1.02 billion, or $1.88 per share, a year earlier. Increased corn seed sales in Latin America also boosted results.

Revenue rose 15 percent to $4.75 billion from $4.13 billion. Analysts were expecting a profit of $2.11 per share on revenue of $4.53 billion.

Monsanto Co. boosted its expectations for full-year adjusted earnings by 10 cents per share to a range of $3.49 to $3.54. Analysts expect $3.51 per share.
