Innovation to help produce the food the world needs

Innovation powers integrated solutions to meet farmers’ needs today, and to anticipate tomorrow’s challenges. Through innovation, we provide products and services to produce what our food system demands, and to conserve resources and sustain the land. Our transparent approach reaches across the food chain, inviting consumers in. By understanding the science, stewardship and testing that goes into our products, our goal is to give consumers confidence about the food their families eat.

Innovation has never been more important

Food is the most basic human need and the engine of economic development. Yet while our world is growing, our food resources are not. As a champion of responsible agriculture, this is our challenge. Our response to the challenge is innovation.

Looking to the future of agriculture

“I hope that students interested in science will consider agriculture and ag R&D as a future career because after all, what could be more important than making sure we all have access to a plentiful, healthy and safe food supply? We need the best and brightest students joining us to innovate and problem solve in this space for generations to come.”

What makes us different?

Corteva Agriscience™ is founded on a rich tradition of innovation that draws upon the combined strengths of DuPont Crop Protection, Dow AgroSciences and Pioneer. We constantly challenge ourselves on how we can bring all our platforms together to offer farmers integrated solutions to their most pressing challenges. We believe in the power of collaboration, inviting in ideas from a wide variety of sources, and developing partnerships with universities and NGOs across the globe.

Understanding producers and consumers

We listen to farmers to understand their needs, applying our science to develop integrated offerings to meet those needs today, with a rich pipeline focused on the future. As a champion of responsible agriculture, we listen to consumers’ concerns, helping them understand the science and stewardship behind our products.

Providing integrated, end-to-end solutions

We focus on a fundamental reframing of how all parts of a solution work together and invite ideas from a wide variety of sources, both internal and external, through initiatives like Open Innovation and partnerships with non-governmental organizations and universities worldwide.

Looking to the future as a leader in global agriculture

We see great potential in areas such as the use of digital technologies, new seed product development tools like CRISPR-Cas gene editing and the next generation of crop protection products–including those that can be used in smaller quantities and can be used in organic agriculture.

Predictive agriculture

“The work we are doing in R&D is directly translatable to a farmer’s field. Digital Ag is already disrupting the Ag economy and we are discovering, testing and validating these technologies within our R&D operations as a way to prove their value and hone our predictive accuracy."
