    DuPont Execs Pretending To Run the Leading Global AG Powerhouse!

    PR-Obsessed DuPont Bosses Mislead and Misrepresent Their Inferior Position In Agriculture

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag, Buon Giorno,

    Monsanto and Syngenta are the largest and leading global enterprises in seeds and crop protection respectively. Notwithstanding the constant PR bombast of DuPont's big bosses, this unwieldy Delaware-based conglomerate lags well behind in the agricultural arena. For example, annually, DuPont must shell out hundreds of $millions in license fees payable to Monsanto in order to embed Monsanto's superior GM traits in Pioneer's otherwise inferior seed line-up.

    After years of severe cost-slashing and dismembering and shrinking a now demoralised DuPont, DuPont leaders lack the competitive pool of creative and incentivised scientific and Managerial talent in order to catch up with the world leaders in agricultural science. Two cases in point: In the past few years, DuPont "leaders" have delivered two massive, multi-$billion ag blunders:

    * The failure to develop and commercialise a first-generation GM seed trait to compete with Monsanto, DuPont OptimumGAP.

    * The falsely, if not fraudulently marketed "very environmentally friendly" dandelion lawn treatment, DuPont Imprelis, which has decimated a couple of $billion or more of mature landscaping trees across the nation! This extraordinarily toxic DuPont lawn herbicide, now mercifully banned by the U. S. EPA, even killed and damaged hundreds of trees at the DuPont Country Club. What a show of executive incompetence, if not unethical misconduct.

    Merely the opinion of one individual retail investor, long MON, AVD, SYT, DOW, and both long and short,
