The Agriculture Division of DowDuPont™ will someday become a stand-alone company under restructuring and the name was revealed during last week’s Commodity Classic to be Corteva Agriscience™ (kohr-‘teh-vah), which is derived from a combination of words meaning “heart” and “nature.”

Vice President of Public Policy and Chief Sustainability Officer Krysta Harden said during the general session that it took months to come up with the name. “We wanted a name that means something,” she said. “So the name means heart of the earth, or heart of nature.”

The division will be called Corteva – the ag division of DowDuPont until the intended company is spun-off, which is expected to happen by June 1, 2019.
