DuPont Receives ‘Patents for Humanity’ Award for Groundbreaking Research to Improve Nutritional Profile of Staple Crop
Date:4/15/2013

JOHNSTON, Iowa (PRWEB) April 15, 2013

DuPont has been honored by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), an agency of the Department of Commerce, for its research efforts to improve nutrition, production and availability of sorghum, a staple crop in Africa. The USPTO Patents for Humanity is an awards competition to recognize patented technologies that address humanitarian needs.

“This award recognizes the importance of collaboration across the public and private sectors to bring real solutions to the people and places that need it most,” said Paul E. Schickler, president, DuPont Pioneer. “Science must be at the heart of solutions to feeding a growing population.”

In Africa, each year up to half a million children become blind from vitamin A deficiencies and nearly 600,000 women die from childbirth-related causes, many from complications that could be reduced through better provision of vitamin A, iron or zinc. Nearly 300 million people in Africa depend on sorghum as a staple crop, but do not have access to another staple that provides the essential nutrients that sorghum lacks.

“I congratulate DuPont for their efforts to improve the nutritional quality of sorghum,” said U.S. Senator and Chair of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry Debbie Stabenow (Michigan). “This is a sterling example of how American innovation and modern agricultural technologies help feed a growing world population.”

DuPont established collaborations with a number of organizations, including Africa Harvest Foundation International, the primary coordinating organization for the Africa Biofortified Sorghum (ABS) initiative, to increase the amount and stability of pro-vitamin A,
