Announcing Corteva as Gold Sponsor

Corteva Agriscience

Hi Everyone, it is our pleasure to announce Corteva Agriscience, as PyCon India 2018’s gold sponsor.

Corteva Agriscience™, the agriculture division of DowDuPont™, is the only major agriscience company completely dedicated to agriculture. By combining the strengths of DuPont Pioneer, DuPont Crop Protection and Dow AgroSciences, we've harnessed agriculture's brightest minds and expertise gained over two centuries of scientific achievement.

Purpose:

We are driven to enrich the lives of those who produce and those who consume, ensuring progress for generations to come.

Our Impact:

Champion of farmer success

Farmers are the first to face an ever-changing landscape, while constantly striving for higher yield, resilience and desirability. They need seeds and crop protection products that address their challenges—not just by country or region, but laser-focused down to the acre. We are on the ground alongside them, listening first and then innovating collaboratively to help enable their success. Our priority is the success of the farmer—because when producers thrive, our world thrives.

A novel approach to innovation

Ideas don’t live within the confines of a specific industry, sector or technology. It’s why we apply an open-source philosophy toward innovation, seeking inspiration from a diverse range of thoughts, ideas and solutions. When combined with our world-class research and development capabilities, ideas are transformed into reality with groundbreaking and sustainable agricultural solutions.

Research and Development discovery and commercialization process

The path from discovery of a molecule or trait to its introduction to the market is a long one. Launch is just the halfway point. Post-launch, the Corteva AgriscienceTM Research and Development team continues to explore different formulations and combinations with other innovations to meet the ever-changing needs of farmers.

A responsible food system

We understand that quality food is the foundation of thriving communities and we work closely with farmers to ensure that the latest thinking and technology are used to grow better food, while sustaining the land and conserving resources.
