Farmers Harvesting

Transformation and innovation in our agricultural system is vital to meeting future challenges

To advance our mission of bringing about actions and innovations that improve lives and make the world a better place, we’re forging partnerships to help make a greater impact, faster.

The Nature Conservancy

In collaboration with The Nature Conservancy, Corteva is helping farmers grow food more sustainably while protecting water quality. The initiative will accelerate environmental sustainability, advance soil health and nutrient management, and increase productivity for farmers who operate in the Mississippi watershed.

Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever and National 4-H Council

In partnership with Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever and National 4-H Council, Corteva is supporting monarch butterfly and pollinator habitats at our locations throughout the United States. Through this program, we will engage 4-H youth to help increase pollinator habitats and populations, supporting biodiversity.

Ducks Unlimited

For more than ten years Corteva Agriscience has partnered with Ducks Unlimited donating excess sunflower seed production to optimize wildlife habitats. The goal of this program is to provide small wildlife, specifically passerine species and in particular song birds, with food plots, from simple strips to a couple of acres of either mono or mixed vegetation.  The program has been undertaken on both public and private lands all across the country.

Additionally, as a four-time Green Chemistry Challenge award winner, Corteva Agriscience has been recognized by the EPA for groundbreaking scientific solutions to real-world environmental problems —more than any other agricultural company.

A focused approach to sustainability is imperative for us to deliver on our promise of enriching the lives of those who produce and those who consume, to ensure progress for generations to come.
