DuPont News, February 3, 2012
Farmers contemplating the treatment of their crops for improved yields.
DuPont will work to improve the livelihoods of at least 3 million farmers and their rural communities through targeted collaborations and investments that strengthen agricultural systems and make food more available, nutritious and culturally appropriate.

 

Farmers Zeka Twoboy of Malawi and Kunio Omura of Japan know firsthand about the benefits of scientific innovation when it comes to producing vibrant, plentiful crops free of pests and disease.

Both men are not only feeding families with the products of their harvests, but also are sharing that valuable knowledge with others.

They are featured in this video that opened yesterday’s Food Security Goals Forum and highlights some of the ways DuPont is helping to solve the world’s hunger challenge.
