Soybean Farmers "Spray Early With Confidence" In 2020

When it comes to weed control, it's all about strategy. This is the premise of the 2020 Spray Early With Confidence Program the flexible weed control guarantee from the Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System that pays farmers up to $15/A on additional applications1 if they experience less than acceptable performance on labeled weeds.
