By Top Crop Manager
Oct. 29, 2013, Chatham, Ont. – DuPont Pioneer is building two new processing towers at its Chatham, Ont., production location. The company says the $19-million expansion will enable Pioneer to help simplify the planting process for growers by providing integrated refuge hybrids. This production facility will condition, treat and blend seed to integrate refuge products with other Pioneer products.
“We have operated in Chatham for more than 55 years and continue to bring value to growers and the community here,” said Tim Weller, senior production manager at DuPont Pioneer, in a press release.
Construction has started and is expected to be completed by mid-August 2014. The expansion will also house new soybean conditioning equipment, including dryers and bins.
