Farmer Spotlight – RoundupReady 2 Xtend Soybeans Experience!

With the recent European Union import approval for RoundupReady 2 Xtend soybeans, we are one step closer to having the full RR2X system ready to go!

The final step in the system will be the EPA approval of a Dicamba herbicide for over the top application, which is expected to gain approval late summer of this year.

Here is a video from one of our own seed growers that had the opportunity to utilize the full system in a production field setting. Check out Dale’s take on the system below!

From my experience, I was impressed with the weed control results. The product showed a very quick kill of some of our tougher and glyphosate resistant weeds.

Keep on the lookout this summer for more information and the eventual EPA approval of the Dicamba herbicide.
