Advertisement THE ULTIMATE FLEXIBILITY IN HERBICIDE APPLICATIONS Controlling over 350 species of weeds including Palmer amaranth, waterhemp, marestail, velvetleaf, and kochia, the Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System has become the number one soybean trait platform in the industry.1 Built on exceptional germplasm, it offers tolerance to both dicamba and glyphosate herbicides, consistently high yields, and wields one of the best disease packages on the market. Of all the beneﬁts of the Roundup Ready Xtend Crop System for soybeans, one that isn’t discussed as often is the ﬂexibility in herbicide applications: before, during, and after planting. “Spraying dicamba at planting makes for a powerful preemergence program that still provides the full beneﬁts of the dicamba molecule plus the added beneﬁt of up to 14 days of soil activity” said Jim Schwartz, director of PFR and agronomy at Beck’s. “With the power of dicamba in your pre-emergence, you have the freedom to come back with a different chemistry in your post-emergence application.” With a simple adjustment of your herbicide program, farmers can apply dicamba as a powerful pre-emergent application and achieve the full beneﬁts of the Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System without fear of damaging neighboring crops. POWERFUL WEED CONTROL A soybean is only as good as the herbicide system behind it, so developing an effective herbicide program is essential. Start Clean to Stay Clean. Use an effective tillage program or an appropriate burndown herbicide at the labeled rate eight to 10 days before planting. Power in the PRE. Using XtendiMax® herbicide with VaporGrip® Technology (22 to 24 ﬂ. oz.), Warrant® herbicide (3 to 4 pt.), and a metribuzin product at planting, or as a pre-emergence application, will give farmers the power to combat glyphosate-resistant grasses and broadleaf weeds with no plant back restrictions. The low-volatility formulation of the XtendiMax® herbicide will also provide up to 14 days of soil activity to help control more weeds versus 2,4-D choline. Freedom in the POST. “With the freedom to utilize nondicamba based post-emergent herbicides and still achieve superior weed control, farmers can spray with conﬁdence knowing they are good neighbors and good stewards,” said Schwartz. Making post-emergent applications of Roundup PowerMAX® or Roundup WeatherMAX® (32 ﬂ. oz.) and Warrant® Ultra (50 ﬂ. oz.) when weeds are less than 4 in. tall and within 21 days after emergence is an effective postemergent weed resistance management strategy without using dicamba. PROVEN PERFORMANCE With the combination of innovative trait technologies and herbicide options, Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans have become the most effective weed management system today. Backed by a best-in-class soybean disease package, a history of genetic advancements, and high-yield potential, the Roundup Ready Xtend System provides farmers the ultimate in weed control and performance. The Roundup Ready Xtend System is a proven yield leader in all soil types, notably in yield environments 65 Bu./A. or more. In 12,588 head-to-head comparisons, Beck’s Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans out-yielded industry varieties by 2.0 Bu./A.2 With 60% market share, a 95% satisfaction rate among farmers using XtendiMax3, and an exciting lineup of nextgeneration technologies in the pipeline, this system will give farmers unmatched ﬂexibility for years to come.

Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System data = Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans treated with dicamba, glyphosate and various residual herbicides. LibertyLink® system data = LibertyLink® soybeans treated with Liberty® herbicides and various residual herbicides. Performance may vary, from location to location and from year to year, as local growing, soil and weather conditions may vary. Growers should evaluate data from multiple locations and years whenever possible and should consider the impacts of these conditions on the grower’s ﬁelds. ALWAYS READ AND FOLLOW, IRM, WHERE APPLICABLE, GRAIN MARKETING, STEWARDSHIP PRACTICES AND PESTICIDE LABEL DIRECTIONS Glyphosate herbicides will kill crops that are not tolerant to glyphosate. Dicamba herbicides will kill crops that are not tolerant to dicamba. XtendiMax® herbicide with VaporGrip® Technology is part of the Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System and is a restricted use pesticide.
