ROUNDUP READY 2 XTEND® SOYBEANS

Minimize Weeds, Maximize Yields.

Built on the high yielding Roundup Ready 2 Yield® soybean technology, Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans is the industry's first biotech-stacked soybean trait with both dicamba and glyphosate herbicide tolerance.

With tolerance to glyphosate and dicamba, farmers will have access to additional tools to help control glyphosate-resistant broadleaf weeds such as Palmer amaranth, waterhemp and marestail, along with other tough-to-control broadleaf weeds such as lambsquarters and velvetleaf.

The technology offers the yield and quality potential that farmers already know and trust from their Roundup Ready 2 Yield® soybeans.

Benefits will include:

  • The same yield and quality potential farmers already know and trust from their Roundup Ready 2 Yield® soybeans
  • 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.

XTENDFLEX® SOYBEANS* — Expected Soon

Flexibility and Exceptional Weed Control

XtendFlex® soybeans will be the industry's first triple-stack soybean trait with tolerance to dicamba, glyphosate and glufosinate. Built on Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® technology and with the additional tolerance to glufosinate, farmers will have increased flexibility and choice of three effective herbicides to support the way they manage their fields' unique weed challenges.

Farmers can continue to expect the same high-yielding performance they have seen at harvest from Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans. 

*Commercialization of XtendFlex® soybeans is dependent on multiple factors, including successful conclusion of the regulatory process. The information presented herein is provided for educational purposes only, and is not and shall not be construed as an offer to sell.

 

 

BOLLGARD II® XTENDFLEX® COTTON

Higher yield potential in cotton.

Bollgard II® XtendFlex® is the first triple stack herbicide-tolerance technology in cotton, with tolerance to dicamba, glyphosate and glufosinate herbicides.

Tolerance to three unique modes of action provides added choice and flexibility to apply multiple combinations of these three herbicides pre- and/or post-plant for a very effective weed management system. 

BOLLGARD® 3 XTENDFLEX® COTTON

A Wider Spectrum of Control.

Bollgard® 3 XtendFlex® technology provides the highest level of performance and control by combining industry-leading weed control, elite germplasm and best-in-class insect protection.

As part of the Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System, Bollgard® 3 XtendFlex® technology offers tolerance to three herbicides: dicamba, glyphosate and glufosinate. Tolerance to three different modes of action allows for greater herbicide flexibility — giving farmers more options against tough-to-control weeds.

Bollgard® 3 XtendFlex® technology also introduces a third unique protein: Vip3A. This protein adds a third mode of action for greater control over bollworms and other cotton pests.
