â€śWe are excited to announce the Brevantâ„˘ brand that, as we progress toward the creation of the standalone Agricultural Company, will join the PioneerÂ® brand as the Agriculture Divisionâ€™s premium global seed brands,â€ť said Tim Glenn, Agriculture Division Seeds Business Platform vice president. â€śGrowers can trust seed products bearing the Brevantâ„˘ brand because they will be backed with the latest seed innovations and proven to deliver outstanding results.â€ť
The Brevantâ„˘ brand will serve existing customers of Agriculture Division by replacing the Coodetec and BiogeneÂ® brand products in Brazil. The Brevantâ„˘ brand also will replace the Dow SeedsÂ® brand over the coming months following the merger of Dow and DuPont.
â€śThe Agriculture Division is committed to serving customers through multiple brands and multiple channels that address geographic and demographic buying preferences,â€ť said Glenn. â€śIn addition to our two global seed brands, we will continue to offer quality country- and region-specific seed brands that complete one of the broadest, most diverse seed portfolios in the world.â€ť
The global launch of the Brevantâ„˘ brand was unveiled in Cascavel, Brazil, at the Show Rural Coopavel (Farm Show) one of the regionâ€™s most important farm shows.
â€śI am proud to showcase the Brevantâ„˘ brand at the Coopavel, an important event for the Brazilian agribusiness market,â€ť said Roberto Hun, Agriculture Division leader for Brazil and Paraguay. â€śOur commercial and technical teams will work close to the dealers offering the best technology and services to the growers.â€ť
Brevantâ„˘ brand seed products will be available in a range of crops, including, for example corn, soy, sorghum and wheat in Brazil. The Brevantâ„˘ brand is not planned for launch in the United States.
