MOUNT PLEASANT, Iowa (AP) — DuPont Pioneer says it is laying off dozens of employees and closing a seed production plant in Mount Pleasant.

Company spokeswoman Jane Slusark says about 50 employees were given layoff notices Thursday. Additional details were not released.

Slusark says the closing will allow for better use of technology near areas with more seed acres. She says the company is doing a global review of its seed production plants, and optimizing around areas with more seed acres.

Slusark did not elaborate on what the review could mean for other employees and facilities. Pioneer has 15,000 workers.
