DuPont's Plenish high oleic soybean trait has been approved by the USDA for cultivation in the United States. Plenish high oleic soybeans from Pioneer contain the highest oleic acid content (more than 75 percent) of any soybean product under commercial development.


"Obtaining USDA deregulation for Plenish high oleic soybeans is an example of Pioneer's increased focus and capability in moving biotech traits through global regulatory systems and into farmers' fields," said Paul Schickler, president, Pioneer Hi-Bred, a DuPont business. "This is a significant milestone as we work to develop biotech traits that provide direct consumer benefits and solid results in the fields."
