E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company operates as a science and technology based company worldwide. The company’s subsidiaries and affiliates conduct manufacturing, seed production or selling activities. It has operations in approximately 90 countries. Segments The company's segments include Agriculture, Electronics & Communications (E&C), Industrial Biosciences, Nutrition & Health, Performance Chemicals, Performance Materials, and Safety & Protection. Agriculture Agriculture businesses, DuPont Pioneer (Pioneer) and DuPont Crop Protection (Crop Protection), utilize the company's technology, customer relationships and industry knowledge to improve the quantity, quality and safety of the global food supply and the global production agriculture industry. The segment's businesses deliver a portfolio of products and services that are specifically targeted to achieve gains in crop yields and productivity, including Pioneer brand seed products and brands of insecticides, fungicides, and herbicides. Sales of the company's products in this segment are affected by the seasonality of global agriculture markets and weather patterns. Sales and earnings performance in the Agriculture segment are significantly stronger in the first versus second half of the year reflecting the northern hemisphere planting season. As a result of the seasonal nature of its business, Agriculture's inventory is at its highest level at the end of the calendar year and is sold down in the first and second quarters (year ended December 31, 2014). Trade receivables in the Agriculture segment are at a low point at year-end and increase through the northern hemisphere selling season to peak at the end of the second quarter. Pioneer develops, produces, and markets corn hybrids and soybean varieties. Additionally, Pioneer develops, produces and markets canola, sunflower, sorghum, inoculants, wheat and rice. Pioneer's research and development focuses on integrating high yielding germplasm with value added proprietary and/or licensed native and biotechnology traits with local environment and service expertise. Pioneer develops integrated products for specific regional application based on local product advancement and testing of the product concepts. Pioneer holds multiple long-term biotechnology trait licenses from third parties as a normal course of business. The biotechnology traits licensed by Pioneer from third parties are contained in various Pioneer crops, including corn hybrids and soybean varieties. The majority of Pioneer’s corn hybrids and soybean varieties sold to customers contain biotechnology traits licensed from third parties under these long term licenses. Pioneer is actively pursuing the development of innovations for corn hybrids, soybean varieties, canola, sunflower, wheat and rice based on market assessments of the most opportunities. In corn seeds, programs include innovations for drought and nitrogen efficiency, insect protection and herbicide tolerance. In soybean seeds, programs include products with enhanced end-use value, herbicide tolerance and insect protection. Pioneer markets and sells seed product primarily under the Pioneer brand but also sells and distributes products utilizing additional brand names. Pioneer promotes its products through multiple marketing channels worldwide. In the corn and soybean markets of the U.S. Corn Belt, Pioneer brand products are sold primarily through a specialized force of independent sales representatives. Outside of North America, Pioneer's products are marketed through a network of subsidiaries, joint ventures and independent producer-distributors. Crop Protection serves the global production agriculture industry with crop protection products for field crops, such as wheat, corn, soybean and rice; specialty crops, such as fruit, nut, vine, and vegetables; and non-crop segments, including range and pasture management. Principle crop protection products are weed control, disease control and insect control offerings for foliar application or as a seed treatment.
