MYCOGEN ANNOUNCES FIRST QUARTER RESULTS

 MYCOGEN ANNOUNCES FIRST QUARTER RESULTS
 SAN DIEGO, April 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Mycogen Corp. (NASDAQ: MYCO)


today reported first quarter revenues of $7,363,000 for the period ended March 31, 1992 compared to $3,675,000 in the same period last year. Net loss was $2,124,000, or $.15 per share, compared to a net loss of $701,000, or $.06 per share, for the same period in 1991.
 Compared to last year, overall revenues and expenses increased as a result of the acquisition of Soilserv, Inc. in August 1991, while contract revenue declined as a result of the expected conclusion of various research contracts.
 "The increased net loss reflects the seasonality of our business, write-off of obsolete inventory and the refinement of manufacturing processes for the company's products," said James Glynn, executive vice president.
 Selling, general and administrative costs increased as a result of the Soilserv transaction as well as the increased sales effort in launching Mycogen's MVP(R) and M-Trak(TM) bioinsecticides. Expenses for amortization of goodwill also increased due to the purchase of Soilserv.
 Cash and marketable securities at the end of the first quarter totaled $72,789,000 or approximately $5.06 per share.
 The company announced on April 23, 1992 that it had signed a non- binding letter of intent to form a partnership with the Lubrizol Corp. to acquire Lubrizol's Agrigenetics Co. division, in a transaction that would give Mycogen broader participation in the emerging biological crop protection industry.
 Mycogen Corp. provides crop protection products and services. The Company develops, manufactures and markets environmentally compatible products based on naturally occurring agents to control insects, parasites, weeds and other pests. Mycogen develops its products through the application of genetic engineering techniques and innovative formulations.
