DuPont Pioneer is expanding its Saskatoon Research Centre to better serve western Canadian farmers and support year-round multi-crop breeding and testing programs for Western Canada.
The expansion at the facility is part of DuPont Pioneer's CAD$35 million investment in research and development for western Canada in the past five years, according to a company press release.
At an open house held to celebrate the expansion, guests had an inside look at research and development efforts at the facility. Attendees at the July 15 event included community leaders, industry representatives, employees, and members of the media.
"The facility has a full canola breeding program as well as corn and soybean research activities focused on delivering products adapted to the Prairies," said Dave Charne, research director at DuPont Pioneer Canada, in the press release.
