Date:1/29/2010

eandFoodSecurity/index.htm" onclick="linkClick( this.href );" target="_blank" title="A New Vision for Agriculture">A New Vision for Agriculture,” in which DuPont is participating, could become the model for addressing global challenges broadly. The business-led initiative seeks to increase private-sector engagement and partnership with stakeholders including governments, international organizations, farmers’ associations, civil society and academia.

“The need for collaboration between public and private entities is nothing new,” said Kullman. “What is new is the urgency to start listening, not talking past each other and working toward common goals of finding practical, sustainable solutions that can make real differences to people today and can be replicated for others tomorrow.”

Increasing food production is a priority initiative for DuPont. The company invests about half of its $1.4 billion annual research and development budget to furthering this goal. DuPont is currently delivering and developing crops that produce higher yields with fewer resources, improved approaches to controlling crop pests, better accessibility to healthier food ingredients, packaging that extends the shelf-life of food, and food safety testing, among other things.

DuPont is a science-based products and services company. Founded in 1802, DuPont puts science to work by creating sustainable solutions essential to a better, safer, healthier life for people everywhere. Operating in more than 70 countries, DuPont offers a wide range of innovative products and services for markets including agriculture and food; building and construction; communications; and transportation.
