DuPont to open US seed treatment centres
DuPont is to open two US facilities for developing and testing seed treatment formulations, applications and seed handling techniques. The first two centres in the new DuPont Integrated Seed Science Network will be located in Wilmington, Delaware and Johnston, Iowa. They are due to open in September 2014 and summer 2015, respectively. The centres will enable DuPont to test new formulations under unique environmental conditions while also evaluating product dust-off, the company points out. Facilities outside the US will be added as needed to support the global market.
