Working in our rural and urban communities to help alleviate food insecurity, empower lives and invest in the future. 

Supporting Our Community

From sponsoring local sporting events to working with other organisations to attract a new generation of young people into careers in agriculture, the industry's future relies on maintaining close links with community.

We are proud supporters of the Rural Support Trust and the fantastic work they do in our Rural Communities.

Corteva New Zealand were pleased to be able to donate a portable chiller trailer to help support the many events the Tairawhiti -East Coast branch holds for the Rural Communites in their area.

Work Experience and Internships


Last season our Global Research Facility hosted two summer internships through the Callaghan Research Grant program.  This was an excellent opportunity for students to gain experience in field research and development, develop new skills and work with dedicated scientists.  The Corteva internship program caters for students who are keen to gain hands-on practical experience at a first class research facility.
