Weyerhaeuser and DuPont Pioneer enter technology license agreement

FEDERAL WAY, Washington – Weyerhaeuser Company has announced a technology license agreement with DuPont Pioneer. Weyerhaeuser  said the agreement will advance seed technologies to help meet growing global demands for food, feed and fiber.

Weyerhaeuser said the agreement brings together agricultural and forestry know-how to sustainably improve crop productivity for corn growers around the world. Based on scientific research behind years of Weyerhaeuser NR sustainable forestry, the manufactured seed technology allows for the storage, nourishment, planting and germination of cells capable of growing into a plant. This technology provides a means to cost-effectively regenerate valuable, limited or fragile plant material.

"DuPont Pioneer is pleased to work with Weyerhaeuser to build upon our robust pipeline of enabling technologies," said John Arbuckle, vice president, Crop Genetics Research and Development for DuPont Pioneer. "We are committed to helping growers be more productive and profitable on every acre. This new agreement provides access to cutting edge technology to support that objective."
