Earnings, adjusted for nonrecurring gains, came to 77 cents per share, which was 2 cents better than Wall Street was expecting, according to analysts surveyed by Zacks Investment Research.

"Today, the crops in North America and Europe are developing nicely, so we are preparing for what could be very large harvests," said Chairman and CEO Patricia Woertz.

Shares of Archer-Daniels-Midland Co. dipped 4 cents in premarket trading but remain close to 10-year highs.
