DuPont business Pioneer Hi-Bred recently announced an expansion of its Janesville, Wis., corn research facility. The planned expansion will nearly double the size of the current facility and allow for increased research capacity at the site.

"The Pioneer Janesville research facility expansion is an investment in the future success of Wisconsin and northern Illinois growers,” said Patrick Yockey, business director, Northern business unit, Pioneer. “Expanded research capacity at the Janesville facility will help area growers maximize productivity on every acre by helping them to place the right product on the right acre.”

The Janesville research center, established in 1982, develops and evaluates corn hybrid products that best fit Wisconsin and Northern Illinois maturity zones and environmental pressures, including insect and disease pests.  The planned 12,000-square-foot expansion will create more office space and research capacity and is scheduled for completion this fall.

The Janesville expansion is the latest of several recent U.S. investments made by Pioneer, including creating a new sales area in South Dakota and expanding research facilities in Eau Claire, Wis., and Willmar, Minn., to meet growing demand for Pioneer® brand products and services in the upper Midwest, U.S.  Pioneer also has recently announced several expansions and new facilities to increase research and production capacity across North America, including new research facilities and space for 400 additional research positions based in Johnston, Iowa, and a $55 million soybean production plant in New Madrid, Mo.
