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.
