Pioneer Hi-Bred plans to expand its corn drought research efforts in Manhattan, Kan., and Plainview, Texas, further strengthening the company's commitment to bringing better genetics and traits that meet specific challenges facing growers.

These locations, traditionally focused on sorghum, now will be expanded to include additional research for corn drought testing. The expanded facilities will allow Pioneer to establish managed stress environments, including needed irrigation systems. Both native and transgenic traits will be evaluated and characterized at these research facilities.
