Recently, DuPont Pioneer opened a unique research center in Chiapas State, Mexico. This is the first center of its kind in the region focused on increasing agricultural production, developing hybrid maize seeds for 12 countries with tropical climates similar to Mexico, such as Colombia, Venezuela and Central America.

During the event, Luis Rebollar, president of DuPont Mexico, Central America and Caribbean, explained that food security is a global challenge that DuPont is using its scientific capabilities to address. With the center, Pioneer is seeking solutions to the specific needs of unique agricultural environments not only in Mexico, but worldwide.

In his remarks, Ricardo García de Alba, Pioneer Latin America North director, also highlighted the importance of food security.  Adding that the development of hybrid seeds will help increase productivity in maize in the future, further focusing a commitment to provide food security to more than 100 million Mexicans.
