DuPont Expands Seed Production Capacity to Meet Growing Demand for Seed, Grain
Date:11/6/2008

New Facility in Oregon Will Help Ramp Up New Corn Hybrids Faster.

Des Moines, Iowa (Vocus) November 6, 2008 -– DuPont today announced plans to construct a parent seed corn production facility in Hermiston, Ore. The expansion is one of many steps DuPont business Pioneer Hi-Bred is taking to ensure it meets rising demand for Pioneer® brand products and help farmers meet the strong global demand for grain.

The location will produce parent seed corn and pre-commercial hybrid seed corn. DuPont, which recently acquired 40 acres of land in Hermiston, expects initial operation to begin fall 2009 after construction of the facility is completed. The project represents a capital investment of more than $15 million.
