Who We Are

Focusing on the most critical goals

Plenty has changed since our founding in 1926. One thing that hasn't is our guiding principle – our success is based on our customers' success. That belief has helped us become a leading developer and supplier of plant genetics to farmers worldwide. And it's helped those farmers boost productivity, profitability and sustainability.

Pioneer Hi-Bred is a DuPont business. And while we now serve customers in more than 90 countries, we're headquartered in Iowa – right where we have been since 1926.

Pioneering Science

We use the science of the lab and the land to maximize productivity and sustainability of the world's farmland. It's this – our unwavering dedication to research and development – that yields our customers results.


Growing long-standing relationships happens when we listen to customers, walk their fields and share technical resources to develop solutions. We strive to do what's right – operating with fairness, honesty and openness with all stakeholders from customers and business partners to employees and investors.

Creating Value

We build long-term success with products that help growers exceed their goals and with programs that connect them to new markets and profit opportunities. Our unparalleled customer service creates value for farmers worldwide.
