Borel noted that food security is increasingly being recognized as a key to security. He said plant biotechnology will be a critical tool to doubling global agricultural output by 2050 and helping provide food security to the 9 billion people expected to be on the planet. He also noted the role biotechnology can play in addressing the need for renewably sourced energy and materials as solutions are sought to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.

Borel gave examples of how the DuPont investment of more than $1 billion in research and development annually is addressing mega trends:

 
  • Increased Food Production: Investments in advanced plant breeding are increasing food production today with innovations such as Y Series Soybeans from DuPont business Pioneer Hi-Bred, which have 5-10 percent more yield.
  • Reducing Dependence on Fossil Fuels: A versatile fiber from DuPont called Sorona® has all the positive attr
