December 13, 2016 01:15 PM

Monsanto and Bayer officials are asking soybean growers to support their proposed merger.

Monsanto chief technology officer Robb Fraley addressed the potential $66 billion acquisition of Monsanto with members of the American Soybean Association and the United Soybean Board at the USB winter meeting in St. Louis, Mo.

“I’m here for your support,” Fraley told the crowd.

The deal is in the hands of regulators and won’t close until late 2017.
