Agriculture & Nutrition
DuPont scientists and engineers are transforming agriculture and the way food is grown, processed and distributed. It’s our mission to provide solutions to ensure that food supplies are harmless, abundant and more nutritious to the overall health of our nation’s citizens. We are working every day to advance the nutritional content of crops and help U.S. farmers and growers increase their yields.
Sixty percent of our research and development dollars goes into agriculture and nutrition improvements. We also innovate to improve food packaging, so vital nutrients and freshness are locked in, and pathogens are locked out.
DuPont is also a trusted source of products and solutions for land management. In public spaces, our herbicides help control weeds and overgrown brush alongside roadside rights of way to help maintain the natural beauty in pastures and rangeland, and help reduce the threat of fire.
