New Hybrid Rice Seeds
Pioneer began hybrid rice breeding in Hyderabad, India in 1988 with its first commercial release of seeds in 1993. The industry is now growing at a very rapid pace as rice farmers realize the yield & income advantage of hybrids over traditional varieties.
Aside from India, Pioneer has commenced distribution of hybrid rice in Indonesia and in the Philippines-in the dry season of 2008-after a series of evaluation phases involving nationwide field trials and identification of farmers' product needs.
Pioneer Hi-Bred Philippines envisions that successes of hybrid corn farmers today will also be enjoyed by our Filipino rice farmers in the near future. For more details on rice planting, download our product brochure here.
