At DuPont We Design Crop Protection Solutions to Help Growers Feed the World
We believe that by working together with growers, business partners and regulatory agencies, we can use creative, inclusive thinking to find science-based crop protection solutions.
DuPont Crop Protection works hard to understand the needs of growers as they rise to the challenge of feeding an expanding global population. 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 Canadian growers to protect their crops. That includes everything from wheat, canola, pulses, soybeans and corn to potatoes, apples and blueberries. 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.

No-Till Soybeans | IP Soybeans
Vertical tillage sets the stage for higher yields in no-till soybeans. And pre-plant weed control helps keep premiums in sight. DuPont™ Guardian® brand herbicides can help.
Make Your First Spray Count
Adding a pre-emerge herbicide application with residual control in your glyphosate-tolerant or IP soybean crop buys you time and quite possibly boosts yield by keeping the crop clean early on.
Managing Your Workload
A pre-plant or pre-emergent herbicide program in IP soybeans can help you manage your workload and save you money. Having enough residual to carry you through the busy spring season lets you control yield-robbing weeds early. And sometimes, one spray can be enough. Hear one grower’s experience.
