Deere & Co. revised slightly upward the number of workers who will go on indefinite layoff later this month at the Moline farm-equipment giant’s big factory in Davenport, Iowa to 200 from the previously announced 190.

The company, which had originally announced the job cuts last month, also said that all 200 of the workers losing their jobs will be laid off on February 16th. That’s in contrast to Deere’s earlier expectation that some of those workers might receive a temporary reassignment.
