Channel Introducing New Roundup Ready 2 Xtend Soybean Products

JOE BUNCK

LUBBOCK, TEXAS
   Late last year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved XtendiMax™ herbicide with VaporGrip™ Technology for in-crop use with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans. A wide variety of Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybean products are available for the 2017 growing season, so growers need advice as to which products best fit their acres. 
   For example, Channel is introducing 33 new high yielding Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybean products across seven maturity groups, with agronomic traits including resistance to nematodes, phytophthora root rot and sudden death syndrome. Here is an overview of the features and benefits of the industry’s first biotech products with tolerance to both dicamba and glyphosate herbicides, and where you can find customized recommendations for which products fit your acres.
Improved weed management










   By combining innovative trait technologies and herbicide options, Monsanto developed the Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System to help maximize weed control and increase yield potential. With the proliferation of glyphosate-resistant weeds in soybeans, the need for a new technology has never been greater.
   Some notable benefits of this new dicamba-based system include:
   • Control of glyphosate-resistant broadleaf weeds such as Palmer amaranth, waterhemp and marestail, along with other tough-to-control broadleaf weeds such as lambsquarters and velvetleaf.
   • Up to 14 days of soil activity for small-seeded broadleaf weeds such as waterhemp, lambsquarters and Palmer amaranth, to help primary residual herbicides keep fields clean through canopy. Results may vary depending on rainfall and soil type. 
   • Extended application flexibility of dicamba before, at and after planting.
   With so many Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybean products available, how can growers choose which products fits their farm? With local agronomic expertise and current yield data, your Channel Seedsman can help you make the best choice with this new advanced technology.

   Please note that that not all states have approved in-crop use of dicamba, so growers should consult their states before applying dicamba in-crop to ensure compliance with state laws. Information on the latest state approvals can be found at RoundupReadyXtend.com. ∆
