(Vocus) June 17, 2009 –- Pioneer Hi-Bred, a DuPont business, and Beck’s Hybrids today announced they have entered into research and distribution agreements to bring additional corn and soybean products to growers in the marketplace.

“Teaming with Pioneer, an organization with one of the premier germplasm development programs in the world, enables synergy between us to identify seed products that excel in Beck’s geography,” said Scott Beck, vice president -- Beck’s Hybrids. “These agreements allow us to create, test and identify new hybrid combinations that give our growers a new source of elite products, while maintaining our family ownership, independence and freedom to operate.”

“We are truly excited about this business relationship with Beck’s Hybrids to broaden our marketing footprint by utilizing one of Pioneer’s core strengths, our world-class genetics,” said Frank Ross, vice president and regional director -- North America. “Both businesses will benefit and we will also enhance the choices of technologies and genetics available to the grower.”
