The international agricultural research company Corteva Agriscience has increased 2.6 times the number of Pioneerยฎ brand corn seed hybrids that are grown on the production fields of the company’s seed complex in Poltava region, to 24, according to its press release.

According to the report, the portfolio of Ukrainian-produced corn seeds in 2024 will, in particular, include hybrids from the Pioneer Optimum AQUAmax line.
