DuPont has invested $5 million in the centres. The new centres will employ 35 researchers combined, including ten new positions and 25 research employees who will be transferring from existing locations.

The Hungarian research center, located in Hódmezővásárhely (southeast Hungary), will expand the current comprehensive breeding, testing and disease characterization programs for sunflowers. The corn breeding program will add an additional maturity to the current efforts combined with enhanced disease and agronomic trait characterization capabilities to meet the specific agronomic needs in this important grain producing region, DuPont said.

The Italian research center, located in Pessina Cremonese (Po valley, north central Italy), also will expand maturity coverage and strengthen disease and agronomic trait characterization. (MTI-Econews)
