DuPont Expects Increased Global Seed Corn Share, Continued Agriculture Earnings Growth
Date:2/10/2009

ginning of a procession of product launches from the company's research pipeline that will continue to fuel DuPont earnings growth.

"Our pipeline is on track to deliver industry-leading technologies that will sustain our growth," he said. "Many of these technologies provide clear advantages over what others are bringing to the market."

Borel said that the company's Optimum(R) AcreMax(TM) 1 insect protection system is expected to receive reduced refuge registration in 2009. "Pending regulatory approval, Optimum(R) AcreMax(TM) 1 products will be the first in-the-bag insect control solution for growers and will eliminate the need for farmers to plant a separate corn rootworm refuge. It will allow growers to easily comply with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's refuge management guidelines and increase their productivity."

DuPont also will launch another industry first as early as 2009 - the first biotech soybean trait with direct consumer benefits. High oleic soybeans will offer nutritional benefits to consumers and functional benefits to the food industry.

Other traits in the DuPont pipeline that are on the fast track for introduction:

  • 2010 - Optimum(R) GAT(R) corn, for improved weed control options in corn.
  • 2010 - Drought Tolerance I, a product offering with enhanced water use efficiency traits selected through molecular breeding validated in on-farm field trials.
  • 2010/2011 - Seed Production Technology for improved seed corn quality and decreased seed production costs of more than 20 percent.
  • 2011 - Optimum(R) GAT(R) soybeans that enhance weed control options for soybean growers and provide improved crop performance.

"These advancements along with our Accelerated Yield Technology(TM) and elite germplasm are allowing us to stay on track to increase corn and soybean yield
