Join us February 11 for Laurie Yoshida, of Rotary Club of Kauai and who is a  PDG for D5000 (2011-2012). She will provide updated information for Corteva.

With roots in Hawai’i dating back more than five decades, Corteva Agriscience began its operations as Pioneer Hi-Bred International in 1968.  

Adopting land formerly used for sugarcane cultivation, Pioneer began researching conventional hybrid corn seed varieties in Waimea.

In 1999 Pioneer expanded to O’ahu, opening its current Waialua Parent Seed farm and introducing the Kunia Research Center in 2005.

Today, Corteva utilizes modern biotechnology to develop and grow both conventional and genetically engineered corn seeds.

Corteva Hawai’i continues to help farmers across the globe face the many challenges within the agricultural farming industry.
