CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) — Archer Daniels Midland Co. said Tuesday that it is firing 175 people at its headquarters in Illinois as part of a plan to cut what it now says will be 1,200 mostly salaried jobs across the company.

Decatur-based ADM said earlier this year that it planned to cut 1,000 jobs through a combination of layoffs and buyouts.

The company wouldn't provide specifics about where other cuts are happening, but it said it should be finished eliminating jobs in the United States this week. Elsewhere, the process will continue.

"We expect a total of about 1,200 when we're done with this process in the coming months," ADM spokesman David Weintraub said.
