Who We Are
DuPont Pioneer began operating in Zimbabwe in 1992, distributing PioneerÂ® brand corn hybrids through area sales agronomists, dealers, rural traders and farmers who link Pioneer to Zimbabwe's commercial and communal farmers. Zimbabwe also serves as the headquarters for Pioneer's East African operations, including Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania and Zambia.
Focusing on the most critical goals
Plenty has changed since our founding in 1926. One thing that hasn't is our guiding principle Â– our success is based on our customers' success. That belief has helped us become a leading developer and supplier of plant genetics to farmers worldwide. And it's helped those farmers boost productivity, profitability and sustainability.
Pioneer Hi-Bred is a DuPont business. And while we now serve customers in more than 90 countries, we're headquartered in Iowa Â– right where we have been since 1926.
We use the science of the lab and the land to maximize productivity and sustainability of the world's farmland. It's this Â– our unwavering dedication to research and development Â– that yields our customers results.
Growing long-standing relationships happens when we listen to customers, walk their fields and share technical resources to develop solutions. We strive to do what's right Â– operating with fairness, honesty and openness with all stakeholders from customers and business partners to employees and investors.
We build long-term success with products that help growers exceed their goals and with programs that connect them to new markets and profit opportunities. Our unparalleled customer service creates value for farmers worldwide.
Every PioneerÂ® brand product is built on industry-leading elite germplasm and is backed by agronomic support and services to help increase farmer productivity and profitability around the world.
PlenishÂ™ high oleic soybeans from Pioneer benefit farmers, the food industry, and consumers. In addition to the strong agronomics and yields growers demand, PlenishÂ™ high oleic soybeans contain the highest oleic content (more than 75 percent) of any soybean product under commercial development. This significantly increases the stability of the oil and provides greater flexibility in food applications, while yielding a product with 0g trans fat, making it a more attractive ingredient for consumer food products. www.plenish.com.
OptimumÂ® Brand Innovations is our brand name of a family of traits, products and accompanying programs that enable growers to be more productive with choices to meet their individual needs.
The OptimumÂ® AcreMaxÂ® 1 system is the industry's first insect control solution that allows growers to simplify and reduce their corn rootworm (CRW) refuge by placing refuge in the bag. Optimum AcreMax 1 is an in-the-bag product that contains 90 percent of a PioneerÂ® brand hybrid with HerculexÂ® XTRA (CRW/CB/LL/RR2) insect protection and 10 percent of a Pioneer hybrid of the same genetic family with the Herculex I (CB/LL/RR2) trait, which serves as the corn rootworm refuge. This allows growers the flexibility to plant the required corn borer refuge up to Â½ mile away.
Optimum AcreMaxÂ® RW products can serve as a CRW-protected corn borer refuge for Optimum AcreMax 1 products. They contain 90 percent of a Pioneer hybrid with the Herculex RW trait and 10 percent of a Pioneer hybrid from the same family, but with herbicide tolerance only. All seed in the bag is tolerant to glyphosate chemistries. In addition, Optimum AcreMax RW products can be placed up to Â½ mile away from an Optimum AcreMax 1 product field, allowing maximum flexibility and the ability to cover all of a grower's acres with industry-leading in-plant rootworm technology.
OptimumÂ® AQUAmaxÂ™ hybrids are products developed and tested to help deliver a yield advantage in water-limited environments. Products of Pioneer's extensive drought genetics research and proprietary Accelerated Yield Technology (AYTÂ™) system, Optimum AQUAmax hybrids offer new options for growers seeking improved yields under drought stress, helping to minimize risk and maximize productivity.
