Jim Collins, CEO of Corteva Agriscience, the newly independent publicly traded spin-off of DowDuPont, will deliver an address on the trade, regulatory, environmental and innovation issues facing U.S. farmers and the subsequent threat these issues pose to the food security of American consumers and the growing global population at a National Press Club Headliners luncheon on September 25, 2019.

Promoting Corteva as “America’s newest agriculture company,” Collins will discuss the specific actions the company is taking to help create a sustainable food system that will benefit farmers, consumers and the environment. Additionally, Collins will share details of an upcoming global initiative Corteva is leading to foster a “climate-positive” global agriculture industry.
