Demand for Healthier Soybean Oil GrowsNovember 20, 2013
DuPont Pioneer and Perdue AgriBusiness will increase acreage contracted to farmers for Plenish® high oleic soybeans in 2014 in Salisbury, Maryland, USA.
"Maryland soybean farmers have a high regard for soybeans and the value the crop brings to the state's agricultural industry," said Randy Minton, DuPont Pioneer business director for the Eastern region. "The 2014 contract program will provide them an opportunity to strengthen market demand for the soybean industry and earn more income per bushel."
According to Pioneer, the high oleic soybean oil developed using advanced genetics and cutting-edge technologies, has 0g trans fat per serving and 20 percent less saturated fat than commodity soybean oil. Plenish high oleic soybeans are approaching completion of global regulatory approvals with over 96 percent of U.S. soybean export markets now approved.
