What the DowDupont merger means for the ag industry

Bryce Eger (Corteva) and Shaun Haney (RealAgriculture) on stage at TechTour LIVE in Red Deer, AB.

In February, DowDuPont announced plans to spin-off a standalone agriculture company consisting of DuPont Crop Protection, DuPont Pioneer, and Dow AgroSciences. The intended company, named Corteva Agriscience, will be created by June 1, 2019, and headquartered in Delaware.
