Our Interests

At Corteva Agriscience, our interests span the many fields of research that impact agriculture. 

To enable valuable interactions with the global innovation community, we provide a variety of ways to work together.  Possibilities include funding to support research in our areas of interest, technology and molecule testing, material exchanges, idea exchanges, and licensing opportunities. We invite the global research community to engage with us in the following areas:


Greenhouse Photoshoot

We develop traits, both biotech and native, in support of sustainability, quality and higher yield potential. We are interested in collaborations that target:

  • Native gene targets for increased disease resistance
  • Biotech and native insect control methodologies
  • Novel herbicide resistance targets
  • Improved quality output traits

Plant Breeding

Plant Breeding

Our breeding programs, resulting in one of the most extensive germplasm libraries in the world, combine 90+ years of innovation and expertise for continued genetic gain. We are interested in collaborations that target:


  • Natural diversity in our crop products
  • Crop growth modeling
  • Methods for driving recombination
  • New phenotyping methods
  • Artificial intelligence application for breeding programs


Enabling Technologies


We develop new plant breeding tools (CRISPR-Cas), improve crop transformation, and deploy new, high-throughput genotyping and phenotyping technologies. We are interested in collaborations that target:

  • Efficient and flexible genome-editing technologies
  • Next generation transformation technologies
  • Single-plant, cell-based, high-throughput genotyping platforms
  • Non-destructive, high-throughput plant phenotyping technologies for field and controlled environments
  • Automated tissue sampling
  • Sensor platforms for in-field continuous characterization of soil composition and microclimates


wheat germination in soil

In addition to our advanced genetics, seeds are complemented with biological treatments that enhance plant protection and yield. We are interested in collaborations that target:

  • Novel insect, disease, nematode and weed control actives through the screening of diverse microbial libraries
  • Improvement or stabilization of microbial products and delivery systems

Digital Solutions


We create differentiating, predictive agriculture tools that generate actionable outputs to growers. We are interested in collaborations that target:

  • Improved analytics of drone and satellite imaging data for plant health diagnostics, disease/insect pressure and yield prediction
  • Deployment of sensor platforms for in-field continuous monitoring of soil characteristics and microclimates
  • Machine learning and artificial intelligence

Crop Protection

Crop Protection

We innovate in the areas of new active ingredients and formulations for crop protection.

We are interested in collaborations that target:

  • Natural or synthetic pest control actives with novel modes of action
  • Improved formulation and delivery systems
  • Improved seed applied technologies

Let's Collaborate!

We invite the global innovation community to join us in building solutions for agriculture research by responding to specific challenges and submitting proposals for collaboration in our interest areas.
