Corteva Argiscience is a leading supplier of seed and crop protection products to farmers. Corteva formed from the merger of Dow AgroSciences, DuPont Pioneer and DuPont Crop Protection and became a stand alone company on June 1st 2019. Corteva's brands have provided farmers with top yielding and strong agronomic crop varieties that were developed and tested in our local area.聽 Corteva provides expert customer service and we take pride in helping our growers get the most profitability from their farms.

Tell us about your team of employees and owners.

The Corteva Agriscience Olivia research facility houses 20 full time employees that work hard for our customers evaluating thousands of varieties or corn and soybeans each year. We maintain research plots across Minnesota and South Dakota. During peak months we employ up to 90 part-time employees.

Tell us about your customers and why they choose to do business here.

Our global flagship brand, Pioneer, has been providing farmers with top yielding varieties for more than 95 years. We have a rich history of caring for our customers and providing one-on-one agronomic advice to help increase profitability on our customer farms. Our customers get more than a bag of seed or a jug of herbicide when they do business with Corteva. Our products are backed by industry leading experts that can help famers take their operation's profitability to the next level. We do all of this with safety, the environment and stewardship as a top priority.
