Roundup Ready

Roundup Ready® Soybeans are genetically engineered to be glyphosate-tolerant. Roundup PowerMAX® is a Roundup® agricultural herbicide formulation that offers powerful, consistent weed control. Its enhanced consistency of control has been proven on hard-to-control weeds such as velvetleaf, lambsquarters, purslane, kochia and morning glory.

LibertyLink

The LibertyLink® trait with Liberty herbicide enables growers to effectively avoid or manage weed resistance as the only nonselective alternative to glyphosate-tolerant systems. LibertyLink® hybrids combine high-yielding genetics with excellent crop safety from built-in tolerance to the powerful, post-emergence weed control. A wide selection of LibertyLink® hybrids is available from elite germplasm providers, including all Herculex®, SmartStax® and Agrisure® hybrids with corn borer protection.

LibertyLink® Patent Statement
Soybean seeds containing the LibertyLink® trait are protected under multiple United States patents and may be planted only to produce one (1) commercial crop and only after signing a Grower Trait License agreement. It is illegal to save or catch soybean seeds containing the LibertyLink trait for use as planting seed or for transfer to others for use as planting seed.

Insect Resistance Management

IRM

Before opening a bag of seed, be sure to read and understand the stewardship requirements, including applicable refuge requirements for insect resistance management, for the biotechnology traits expressed in the seed set forth in the technology agreement that you sign. By opening and using a bag of seed, you are reaffirming your obligation to comply with the most recent stewardship requirements.

Respect the Refuge

Respect the Refuge

Respect the Refuge is a training and communication campaign that helps heighten awareness of Insect Resistance Management (IRM) requirements, as mandated by the EPA, when insect-protected traits are planted. When using insect-protected technologies, please respect the refuge and plant appropriate refuge on your farm. Please refer to the most current IRM Guide.
