Pioneer President Addresses U.N. Conference on the Least Developed Countries

Investing in research directed at the needs of smallholder farmers is key to meeting the world food needs, Paul E. Schickler, president, DuPont business Pioneer Hi-Bred, told attendees during the Fourth United Nations Conference on the Least Developed Countries.

"All farmers need to succeed if we are to meet the world's demands," said Schickler. "We have found that working with farmers and their local communities to understand their unique challenges is critical to getting them the right tools and technology to help close the production gap and, in turn, achieve food security."
