At DuPont, We Design Crop Protection Tools to Help Growers Feed the World
We believe that by working together, we can find better ways to improve the quantity, quality and sustainability of the world’s food supply.
DuPont Crop Protection works hard to understand the needs of growers as they rise to the challenge of feeding a growing world. We use inclusive thinking to create answers in insect, weed and disease control that help growers improve the quality and yield of their crops, and the productivity and sustainability of their farming operations.
We combine global innovation with local collaboration to turn promising ideas into real answers for growers to protect crops from fruits, vegetables and nuts to corn, soybeans, wheat and canola. And we focus on ideas that will minimize environmental impact to help preserve our precious resources.
In agriculture, succeeding means growing a healthy, marketable, profitable crop. And it means something bigger: feeding the world sustainably.
