Corteva Agriscience, the agriculture division of DowDuPont, has renewed its Leading Strategic Partnership with AUSVEG, recommitting to the vegetable and potato industries to ensure our two organisations can continue to deliver benefits for Australian growers.

Corteva is a leader in products and services that help create an agricultural ecosystem that naturally supports people, progress and the planet. Its primary purpose is to enrich the lives of those who produce and those who consume, ensuring progress for generations to come.

This Partnership is now in its second year, and builds on AUSVEG’s previous Strategic Partnerships with Dow and DuPont prior to their merger in 2017. As a Leading Strategic Partner, Corteva’s continued support is a welcome and valued contribution to the work AUSVEG does on behalf of our industry, from events to advocacy – including our policy work representing the interests of Australian growers on vital issues that are impacting on our industry’s productivity and profitability.

As part of this Partnership, Corteva will have a strong presence at Hort Connections 2019, helping to make this event the biggest destination for Australian horticulture.

In particular, this event is a great opportunity for Corteva to display its commitment to the next generation of Australian growers. This year’s young grower social event will be sponsored by Corteva, and it will also once again be sponsoring the Corteva Young Grower of the Year Award celebrating the emerging leaders of our sector. (For more information about the 2019 National Awards for Excellence, see here.)

AUSVEG welcomes Corteva’s continued commitment to our sector, and we look forward to continuing to work together to benefit the Australian vegetable and potato industries for years to come.
