One of DuPont’s strategic priorities is to extend its leadership in the science-driven segments of the agriculture-to-food value chains, then to leverage the linkages across these segments. In 2013, DuPont’s Agriculture and Nutrition and Health segments comprised more than 40% of company sales.
"Our agriculture research pipeline, strong positions in global markets and today’s launch of a new suite of whole-farm solutions continue to demonstrate our commitment to innovate and deliver valuable agriculture and food solutions," says James Borel, DuPont executive vice president, who spoke at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch 2014 Global Agriculture Conference.
As such, DuPont Pioneer has launched EncircaSM services, a suite of whole-farm decision services to help improve productivity and profitability. These tailored, brand-neutral offerings will be delivered through local Encirca Certified Services agents, who work directly with farmers to analyze and customize recommendations.
EncircaSM View will be the first offering to launch under the Encirca Services brand this spring. Growers will have the option of signing up for a free mobile-enabled information platform or a premium, fee-based program.
