Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® Soybeans

Innovative Trait

Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans combine the proven yield potential of the Roundup Ready 2 Yield® soybean trait, along with tolerance to both dicamba and glyphosate. Roundup Ready 2 Yield®, which is a key component of Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans, has been shown to produce more beans per pod and more bushels per acre vs. original Roundup Ready® soybeans.

Trait Features:

Multiple modes of action:
  • Employing multiple modes of action to control the same weed spectrum is part of a good weed resistance management strategy.
  • Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans are tolerant to both dicamba (Group 4) and glyphosate (Group 9), and are intended to provide soybean growers with the option of applying Roundup WeatherMAX® herbicide (glyphosate) and dicamba for maximum weed control.
  • XtendiMax™ (dicamba) and Roundup Xtend™, both with VaporGrip™ Technology Herbicide (glyphosate/dicamba premix) are two chemistry options to help growers enhance their yield potential.
Residual activity, for a wider window of weed control:
  • The residual activity of dicamba may reduce early weed competition and improve late-season control, supporting higher yields and cleaner fields at harvest.
  • Chart 1 shows the extended activity on annual broadleaf and grass weeds from a pre-plant application of Roundup WeatherMAX® and dicamba, as demonstrated in Bayer research trials.
  • Chart 2 shows added yield potential from a pre-plant application of dicamba combined with Roundup WeatherMAX®, as demonstrated in Bayer research trials.

ALWAYS READ AND FOLLOW PESTICIDE LABEL DIRECTIONS. Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans contain genes that confer tolerance to glyphosate and dicamba. Agricultural herbicides containing glyphosate will kill crops that are not tolerant to glyphosate, and those containing dicamba will kill crops that are not tolerant to dicamba. Contact your Monsanto dealer or call the Monsanto technical support line at 1-800-667-4944 for recommended Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System weed control programs. Roundup Ready® technology contains genes that confer tolerance to glyphosate, an active ingredient in Roundup® brand agricultural herbicides. Agricultural herbicides containing glyphosate will kill crops that are not tolerant to glyphosate.
