Science and Food Security | DuPont Genting Plantations Collaboration 2012

 
DuPont and Genting Plantations collaborate through science to address food security

DuPont has been applying science technology to corn and soy beans and seen significant improvement on productivity. In this respect, DuPont will transfer specific innovation to Genting Plantation, which will then customize it to suit their approach by using marker-assisted selection (MAS) to identify high performance of seeds for breeding. Through this technology transfer, Genting Plantations can produce high quality, high performance plants that would boost industry productivity and quality of produce. This collaboration is consistent with the DuPont focus on securing food security for the increasing population.
