New company: Corteva Agriscience

As the merger of giant crop protection companies continues, one more piece of the puzzle was announced on February 26. The Agriculture Division of DowDuPont will be spun off by June 1, 2019 under the name of Corteva Agriscience.

"This is the start of an exciting journey," said James C. Collins, Jr., chief operating officer, Agriculture Division of DowDuPont. "Corteva Agriscience is bringing together three businesses with deep connections and dedication to generations of farmers. Our new name acknowledges our history while looking forward to our commitment to enhancing farmer productivity as well as the health and well-being of the consumers they serve.”

Corteva Agriscience brings together DuPont Crop Protection, DuPont Pioneer and Dow AgroSciences to create a standalone agriculture company with leading positions in seed technologies, crop protection and digital agriculture.

 

For growers in Canadian horticulture, the portfolio includes insecticides such as: Delegate, Closer and Entrust.
