1 XtendiMax® herbicide with VaporGrip® Technology grower survey – August 2017 and September 2018 – All growers surveyed were required to have 50+ acres of Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans or cotton with XtendFlex® Technology and treat at least some acres with XtendiMax with VaporGrip Technology to qualify. Average of 95% based on the results of 97% in 2017 and 93% in 2018.
2 On certain small-seeded broadleaf weeds. Results may vary, depending on rainfall and soil type. Always use dicamba with traditional residual herbicides in pre-emergence and postemergence applications that have different, effective sites of action, along with other Diversified Weed Management Practices including the use of glyphosate. XtendiMax® herbicide with VaporGrip® Technology and in crop use may not be approved in all states.
3 Based on published ASTM humidome methodology.
4 Source: 2017 Monsanto and University Systems Trials (27 locations in 2017 reporting yield data). Significant at P ≤ 0.05 LSD of 1.6 Bu. Data as of November 13, 2017. Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System data = Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans treated with dicamba, glyphosate and various residual herbicides. LibertyLink®system data = LibertyLink® soybeans treated with Liberty® herbicide and various residual herbicides. Performance may vary from location to location and from year to year, as local growing, soil and weather conditions may vary. Growers should evaluate data from multiple locations and years whenever possible and should consider the impacts of these conditions on the grower’s fields.
Across U.S. farm country, weed management is a top concern of farmers, driving seed and herbicide decisions as they seek effective weed control to preserve yield potential.
No matter the weed challenge, environment or growing conditions, U.S. soybean and cotton farmers rely on the Roundup Ready Xtend Crop System.
Giant ragweed, marestail, waterhemp and Palmer amaranth are the weeds driving farmers in Missouri, southern Iowa, eastern Kansas and northeast Arkansas to new technologies for control measures.
