DuPont Accelerating Rate of Productivity Through Additional Plant Breeding
Date:9/17/2009

Adding Research Capabilities in Emerging Markets will Meet Local Needs for Increased Food Production

Des Moines, Iowa (Vocus) September 17, 2009 -- DuPont announced the addition of four new seed research centers in developing countries and expanded operations at three existing facilities to develop seed to meet local needs for food productivity. The new research operations extend the research leadership DuPont business Pioneer Hi-Bred has built and bring the total number of Pioneer research centers to nearly 100 worldwide.


The new research centers include a multi-crop center in Ukraine for corn, canola and sunflower research; and corn research facilities in Beijing, China, and Udaipur and Vijayawada, India. Research operations at facilities traditionally focused on sorghum in Manhattan, Kan., and Plainview, Texas, now will be expanded to include additional resources for corn drought testing. In addition, cotton will join pearl millet and rice as crops with research programs in Hyderabad, India.

"Pioneer is the best in the industry at placing the right product on the right acre to maximize a farmer's productivity," said William S. Niebur, vice president - DuPont Crop Genetics Research and Development. "The addition of these research centers allows us to strengthen our capabilities in these markets even further, bringing better genetics and traits that meet specific growing challenges to our customers faster."

This additional plant breeding capacity is part of the $700 million in research and development DuPont is committing annually to increase global food production. The investment also reflects the company's recently announced
