DowDuPont’s agriculture division, which includes the Dow AgroSciences turf and ornamental business, will get a new name once its spin-off is complete. The new name for the intended agriculture company is Corteva Agriscience. The spin-off is expected to be complete by June 1, 2019.
Corteva Agriscience brings together DuPont Crop Protection, DuPont Pioneer and Dow AgroSciences to create a standalone agriculture company.
The name is derived from a combination of words meaning “heart” and “nature.”
The headquarters will be in Wilmington, Del., and it will include corporate support functions. Sites in Johnston, Iowa, and Indianapolis will serve as global business centers, which will house leadership of business lines, business support functions, R&D, global supply chain and sales and marketing capabilities.
