ROUNDUP READY 2 XTEND® SOYBEANS


RoundUp Ready2 Xtend Soybeans
Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans combine high yield potential with a built-in tolerance to both glyphosate and dicamba, giving your crop a head-start against tough grass and broadleaf weeds. It’s early season control to set your crop up for maximum yield potential.

Early Residual 
Weed Control

The short-term residual activity provided by dicamba controls small-seeded broadleaf weeds, giving you early-season control to help you get ahead of tough weeds and stay there. 

Stronger Yields

Farmer hands full of soybean up close
Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans are built on Roundup Ready 2 Yield® technology, proven to produce more beans per pod and more bushels per acre vs. original Roundup Ready® soybeans. 

Cleaner Fields

Protect the yield potential of your Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans with Roundup Xtend® or XtendiMax® herbicides, both with VaporGrip® Technology, for exceptional control of difficult and resistant broadleaf weeds including kochia, waterhemp and Canada fleabane. 

SYSTEM BENEFITS

Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System

Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans are part of the Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System, an advanced weed management tool designed to help maximize weed control and set your crop up for maximum yield potential. The Roundup Ready Xtend Crop System combines the high yield potential of Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans with the option of two enhanced chemistries: Roundup Xtend with VaporGrip Technology, an easy-to-use, premixed formulation and XtendiMax with VaporGrip Technology, a low-volatility dicamba-only formulation which can be tank mixed with a Roundup-branded product.

Both chemistry options provide control of difficult and resistant broadleaf weeds including kochia, waterhemp, giant ragweed and Canada fleabane. And the short-term residual benefits help to reduce in-crop flushes of these problem weeds.

 

 

The Dicamba Difference

Applying dicamba in the first herbicide pass provides short-term residual activity on small-seeded broadleaf weeds including lamb’s quarters, redroot pigweed and common ragweed to help maximize the yield potential of Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans.

Trials showed a 2.4 bu./ac.1 increase due to reduced early weed competition from the residual dicamba activity.

The residual control provided by dicamba has also been shown to outperform 2,4-D in controlling broadleaf weeds. See the dicamba advantage at Bayer’s Chatham research farm.

For more information on dicamba, refer to these dicamba basics.

APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS

 

Recommended application window for Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans

To maximize the yield potential of your Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans, apply the first pass of dicamba between pre-emergence and V2.

DICAMBA BEST PRACTICES

To maximize the efficacy of your Roundup Xtend or XtendiMax application, follow Bayer’s recommended application requirements. This helpful resource includes information on maximizing on-target application, including specifications for droplet size, wind speed, boom height, and other application variables.

PERFORMANCE

Genetic Comparison Field Scale Trials

The Roundup Ready Xtend Crop System is built on more than forty years of proven genetic breeding. In recent trials, Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans outperformed the competition by 3.4 bu./ac.  So choose the soybean system with the proven genetics to deliver on yield.

Glyphosate-Resistant Canada Fleabane Control

Glyphosate-resistant Canada fleabane continues to threaten the yield potential of soybean acres across Eastern Canada. In research trials, fields were treated with XtendiMax herbicide (dicamba) and 2,4-D. See how dicamba stood up to Canada fleabane.

Glyphosate-Resistant Kochia Control

Glyphosate-resistant kochia is quickly becoming one of the most difficult weeds for Western Canadian farmers to control. Adding dicamba as another mode of action in your toolkit can help combat glyphosate-resistant dicamba. See how Roundup Xtend (dicamba and glyphosate pre-mix) compared to a treatment of Enlist Duo™ (2,4-D and glyphosate pre-mix).
