Pioneer® brand soybeans with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® Technology
Now you can get high-performance Pioneer® brand soybeans with the built-in resistant weed defense of Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® technology. The new varieties contain two herbicide-tolerant traits – one for glyphosate and one for dicamba herbicides. The addition of dicamba tolerance will provide farmers one of the best tools to manage glyphosate resistant and other tough-to-control broadleaf weeds such as waterhemp, marestail, Palmer amaranth, giant ragweed, kochia and others.
Benefits of Pioneer Brand Soybeans with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend Technology
- High-yielding genetics with strong agronomic and defensive traits.
- Locally proven in DuPont Pioneer IMPACT™ tests.
- Next-generation trait and chemistry (pending EPA and state approvals) to manage your toughest weeds, including glyphosate-resistant weeds.
- Weed management system that will incorporate low-volatility dicamba, such as DuPont™ FeXapan™ herbicide (pending EPA and state approvals) for cleaner fields at harvest.
- Reduced plant-back time following dicamba burndown, pending regulatory approval.
A Better Tool to Fight Weed Resistance
Pending EPA and state approvals
- Control of Palmer amaranth, waterhemp, marestail and other glyphosate-resistant weeds.
- Studies demonstrate a low-volatility dicamba herbicide can help prevent development of new weed resistance in soybean fields when used with other herbicide modes of action.
Simple and Effective Weed Control
Benefits of a glyphosate + dicamba weed control program, pending regulatory approval:
- Very broad spectrum control of grass and broadleaf weeds
- Less spray volume and wider window of application than competing programs
- Systemic activity within the plant
- Excellent crop safety
Maintaining the Technology
While weed control needs will vary, any effective weed management system should contain multiple modes of action to maintain herbicide efficacy.
- Start with a clean seedbed with burndown or early pre-plant herbicides for winter annual or early-emerging weeds.
- Apply a pre-emerge herbicide such as DuPont™ Trivence®, Envive® or Enlite® herbicide that provides burndown and residual control.
- Use post-applied sequential applications of labeled dicamba and glyphosate herbicides.
