Bayer announced that the European Commission has authorized XtendFlex soybean technology for food, feed, import and processing in the European Union. This milestone represents the final key authorization for XtendFlex soybeans. With this approval in hand, Bayer can now look forward to a full launch in the United States and Canada in 2021 and expects to be in a strong position to supply 20 million U.S. soy acres when the selling season arrives.
On October 31, 2018, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced a continued registration, including label changes, for XtendiMax® Herbicide with VaporGrip® Technology, following an extensive review.
