Corteva Agriscience is the agricultural unit of DowDuPont. DowDuPont announced the Corteva name in February 2018;[1] Corteva will become a public company on June 1, 2019,[2] when DowDuPont distributes shares in Covetra to its shareholders.


The DowDuPont agricultural businesses that became Corteva had revenue of over $14 billion in 2017,[3] which would have placed the company in the Fortune 500 for that year. A major part of the company is Pioneer Hybrid International, which DuPont purchased in 1999.


In March 2019 Corteva was criticised by the Humane Society of the United States for testing a new fungicide on beagles.[4] It has since stopped testing on beagles, and said it would "make every effort to rehome the animals" after it was reported that researchers intended to put the animals to death.[5][6][7]
