Harvest Shows Results of DuPont Pioneer Innovation

Cindy Zimmerman

DuPont Pioneer 2016 North American yield data from nearly 50,000 on-farm comparisons shows the company’s products and services have had a hand in the record corn and soybean crops being harvested across the country right now.

nafb-16-pioneer-2At the NAFB Trade Talk last week, DuPont Pioneer senior corn marketing manager Ryan French was on-hand to talk about Pioneer brand corn products, including the world-record-setting P1197 and P0157, which provided farmers with 8-9 bushel per acre advantages in comparisons this year. “We’ve got a full portfolio of options,” said French. “So you can build a balanced managed risk portfolio of what you want to put in the ground.”

French also talked about the new line-up of Pioneer® brand Qrome™ corn products that help deliver improved yields to a wider array of hybrid platforms.
