Boreas Mobile Wind Machines


Innovative mobile wind machines designed to increase agricultural productivity test the ability of higher-yielding experimental corn hybrids to withstand violent wind storms that cause significant standability issues and subsequent yield loss.

Nicknamed Boreas – a name inspired by the Greek god of the cold north wind – this innovation challenges DuPont business Pioneer Hi-Bred corn research trials to help scientists improve the standability of Pioneer corn hybrids by producing turbulent winds exceeding 100 miles per hour. These 20-ton mobile wind machines are the newest tool in the company’s Accelerated Yield Technology (AYT™) system toolbox, and a critical component of the Pioneer commitment to increase corn yields 40 percent within the next nine years.
