Date:3/7/2012

NEW YORK, March 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovative technology, local product advancements and a strong 2012 research pipeline have positioned DuPont's seed business, Pioneer Hi-Bred, for continued growth, Pioneer President Paul E.

Schickler presented the 2012 seed research pipeline that features five product advancements and three program additions as a result of last year's R&D efforts.  With many advancing programs close to commercialization, Pioneer also received 39 regulatory approvals in 2011 and submitted another 34 documents pending approval.

This year's pipeline advancements underscore Pioneer's success with the Optimum® AcreMax® family with a wave of insect protection products launching commercially in 2012.  Together Optimum® AcreMax® 1 and Optimum® AcreMax® XTRA are anticipated to achieve 65 percent penetration of the company's above and below ground insect protection offering in North America.

"Our ability to innovate stems from our close relationships with growers as we look for new products and new ways to serve our customers," Schickler said.
