DuPont expands seed business

DuPont is to add more than 400 staff to its seed subsidiary, Pioneer Hi-Bred International, as part of the $100 million restructuring programme that was initiated late last year (Agrow No 501, p 1). Most of the new posts will be in research and development, with 67 of company's 92 research centres set to expand. However, Pioneer will also add more agronomic and sales support staff. The new positions are to be filled by hiring and redeploying DuPont staff from other activities.
