Conventional Corn

Pioneer is committed to offering farmers choices for their specific operations, including non-transgenic options. Pioneer is the leading supplier of conventional corn seed, offering industry-leading products with strong agronomic packages that have been developed using traditional plant breeding methods. 

Pork/Poultry (HAE)

High available energy (HAE) products from Pioneer fit the top goal of livestock and poultry producers: efficiently transform grain energy into meat. The HAE products, identified through a characterization score of 6 or higher for digestible energy, possess superior digestible energy relative to other corn products. Studies show animals extract more digestible energy per acre from each unit of Pioneer® brand HAE corn. These products help deliver increased energy value for your feeding operation.

Corn Refining (HES and WAXY)

By working closely with wet millers, Pioneer has optimized wet milling starch yields with Pioneer® brand high extractable starch (HES) and waxy products. The level of extractable starch in grain varies from product to product. Designated Pioneer brand HES products typically yield a 2 percent advantage over the industry average for extractable starch.

Ethanol (HTF)

Pioneer® brand ethanol products deliver higher levels of fermentable starch, resulting in higher ethanol output. To be designated high total fermentable (HTF) ethanol products, the product must have an above-average ethanol yield potential. Extensive Pioneer research shows ethanol yield potential can vary up to 7 percent among different corn products.
