Chairman and CEO Chad Holliday Updates Investors on Growth Opportunities

NEW YORK, May 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- At an investors' conference here today, DuPont Chairman and CEO Charles O. Holliday, Jr., said the company is accelerating growth through DuPont innovation that addresses global macro trends related to food, safety and security, and renewable energy.

DuPont, one of the largest producers of corn seed in the world, is using biotechnology to develop insect-resistant hybrids to improve productivity, quality and yield and to accelerate breeding step changes and rate of genetic gain. "We have a rich pipeline of new products under development to enhance yield a
