DuPont and retired DuPont scientist George Levitt recently received two prestigious Agrow Awards for innovation and excellence in agriculture. This is the third year DuPont has been recognized by Agrow, a leading provider of news, analysis and data to the global agriculture industry. DuPont earned the Agrow Best Formulation Innovation award for DuPont™ Cyazypyr™ insect control SuspoEmulsion formulation. SuspoEmulsion is a breakthrough technology that enables highly effective insect control with less active ingredients for a reduced environmental footprint. This innovative formulation’s optimal oil content ensures crop safety, while its minimized emulsifier level further reduces the environmental load. George, a retired senior principal investigator for DuPont, was honored with the Agrow Lifetime Achievement Award for his pioneering work in the discovery of sulfonylurea (SU) herbicides. This innovative class of chemistry revolutionized the crop protection industry by providing growers with outstanding weed control at very low use rates. SU herbicides also have an excellent environmental profile that is still considered an industry standard today. “At DuPont, more than 50% of the $1.4 billion annual research and development investment is directed at helping growers increase food production,” said Jim Collins, president DuPont Crop Protection. “We are honored to be recognized for this focus on advancing agriculture. We share this recognition with growers, regulatory agencies and universities we collaborate with every day to deliver innovative, sustainable solutions for the world’s rapidly growing population. DuPont is both proud and pleased that the science accomplishment of George Levitt continues to be recognized.” The Agrow Awards were developed to recognize excellence in the crop protection and production industry.
