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.
