DES MOINES, US/BEIJING, CHINA: DuPont has signed a multi-year lease agreement with Beijing International Flower Port to build a technology hub for its Pioneer seed business in Beijing, China. The new facility will open later this year and will employ about 50 researchers. The technology hub will use Pioneer’s global capabilities in molecular breeding to develop new high-yielding maize hybrids which will improve the sustainability of farming in China, while enhancing food security.

The technology hub will leverage Pioneer’s proprietary matrix of molecular breeding technologies called the accelerated yield technology (AYT) system. “Our vision is to work side-by-side with our Chinese collaborators to bring the AYT system together with other cutting-edge molecular breeding technologies to enhance and accelerate maize breeding in China. Through our network of research and business collaborations, we will bring superior products to market for Chinese farmers supporting the policy direction provided in China’s newly released No 1 document,” said William S Niebur, Vice President, DuPont and General Manager, Pioneer China.
