DuPont opens research centre in Mexico

DuPont seed subsidiary Pioneer Hi-Bred Internationalhas opened a new maize research centre at Los Mochis in Mexico. The centre will be the fourth crop genetics research facility Pioneer operates in Mexico. It will focus on developing superior maize hybrids specifically suited for the northwest and northeast Mexico markets. “This new research centre will help us deliver even more advanced genetics and technologies more quickly and help meet the growing demand for food, feed, fuel and materials,” says DuPont’s vice president of crop genetics research and development William Niebur. The research centre is part of Pioneer’s global strategic plan and increases the total number of such centres to more than 90 worldwide. Mexico recently paved the way for field trials of genetically modified maize, following regulations that came into force in March ( Agrow No 540, p 19).
