Press Release




Mycogen Seeds, a Puerto Rican corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of Dow Chemical Company, has opened its new Seed Research and Development facility in the US territory.


The company, which is affiliated with Dow AgroSciences, has been operating in Puerto Rico since 1992 and the decision to expand came from rising agricultural opportunities.


The new Salinas / Guayama site is a corn and soybean breeding and parent seed facility which covers more than 70,000 square feet. It includes 16 buildings with office spaces, seed labs, equipment storage and several fields.


In addition, the site will possess the latest state-of-the-art equipment in seeds and trait research, enabling researchers to produce innovative farming technologies.


"This expansion is one of many projects we have completed around the world to bring farmers the best technologies and traits in corn and soybeans," said Rolando Meninato, Dow AgroSciences's Global Leader for its Seeds Global Business Unit.
