DowDuPont renames ag division
By Top Crop Manager
The agriculture division of DowDuPont has announced the name of the intended company once it is spun-off, which is expected to happen by June 1, 2019. The intended agriculture company will become Corteva Agriscience, which is derived from a combination of words meaning "heart" and "nature".
Corteva Agriscience brings together DuPont Crop Protection, DuPont Pioneer and Dow AgroSciences to create a standalone agriculture company with positions in seed technologies, crop protection and digital agriculture.
The company says it will continue to invest in brands including Pioneer, Mycogen and the newly launched Brevant seed brands.
The corporate name, brand identity and logo were unveiled earlier this week at Commodity Classic. The corporate headquarters for the intended company will be located in Wilmington, Del., and will include key corporate support functions. Sites in Johnston, Iowa, and Indianapolis, Indiana, will serve as Global Business Centers, with leadership of business lines, business support functions, R&D, global supply chain, and sales and marketing capabilities concentrated in the two Midwest locations.
