We work with farmers and food system partners to develop solutions to deliver benefits

Plenish® High Oleic Soybean Oil

Oil made from Plenish® high oleic soybeans is high in monounsaturated fat, and low in polyunsaturated fats, making it extremely stable. Plenish® high oleic soybean oil has 0g trans-fat, less saturated fat and the highest amount of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat available in soy. Pioneer® brand Plenish® high oleic soybeans offer elite genetics with the yield potential farmers expect, resulting in a healthier soybean oil that has become the industry standard among processors and end users.

In addition, Plenish® soybeans offer a high oleic fatty acid option for dairies trying to maximize milk fat production as well as minimize off-farm feed costs. Growers of Plenish® high oleic soybeans will see higher potential per acre because of processor-paid premiums.

Healthier choices for dairy

 

Bovalta™ BMR Corn Silage

Corteva’s new Bovalta™ BMR hybrids provide the highest levels of fiber digestibility and increased starch content compared to non-BMR corn silage hybrids1 – helping farmers reduce supplemental feed costs and improve dry matter intake. Developed with Corteva’s industry-leading corn genetics and breeding programs, Bovalta BMR hybrids help deliver new levels of performance, agronomics and profit for producers.

M3 Corn

In Europe, M3 corn is driving market change by offering highly digestible corn products with high yield resulting in more milk production per acre, all while decreasing CO2 equivalent emissions compared to traditional corn hybrids. This is a win for food production, energy production, and the environment.

Looking ahead

Our research and development pipeline is focused on developing solutions to enhance the nutritional profiles of crops for both animal feed and human food.
