DuPont Partnering with China to Increase Farm Productivity
Date:4/25/2008

In 2006, Pioneer announced its second joint venture with one of China's largest seed production companies, Dunhuang Seed Co. Ltd.

Pioneer has developed and been promoting the concept of single cross hybrid corn planting among Chinese farmers and invested over US $300,000 (RMB2 million) directly to subsidize farmers in the last season of 2007 for purchase of over 2,000 advanced single kernel vacuum planters. Pioneer also established a partnership with the China National Hybrid Rice Research and Development Center in 2007 to advance hybrid rice in Asia to improve nutrition and living standard through enhancing agricultural productivity for rice farmers. Today, Pioneer has 19 corn hybrids commercially available in China and is working to introduce new biotech traits for corn, soybeans and rice -- crops of particular importance to the region.

Pioneer has a rich research technology pipeline that includes superior herbicide and drought tolerance, insect protection and nitrogen use efficiency traits, as well as innovative healthy oils and biofuels technologies.

"Pioneer is poised to assist China -- and the world -- in meeting growing demand for food, feed, fiber and fuel in a responsible and sustainable manner," Niebur said.

Niebur also delivered the DuPont biotechnology leadership message to the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS) at an April 24 seminar in Beijing. CAAS is China's national agricultural research organization, directly affiliated with its Ministry of Agriculture.

Pioneer Hi-Bred, a DuPont business, is the world's leading source of customized solutions for farmers, livestock producers and grain and oilseed processors. With headquarters in Des Moines, Iowa, Pioneer provides access to advanced plant genetics in nearly 70 countries and regions.

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,
