The recent import approval for Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans by the EU marks an important milestone toward a full system launch of the next-generation soybean technology. This exciting news follows Monsanto’s February announcement of Chinese import approval, lending even greater commercial potential for U.S. growers.
 
What this means for you:
With the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the final stages of review for over-the-top use, farmers can now move ahead with including Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybean products in their plans for 2017 planting. Once the EPA approves over-the-top use, this trait technology will provide more weed management options as well as the latest generation of soybeans genetics.  The industry's first soybean stacked herbicide trait with both dicamba and glyphosate tolerance will be available in 40 Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® traited CROPLAN® products ranging in maturity from 0.0 to 6.9.
 
Additional information on the chemistry and adjuvants related to Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® will be forthcoming as the EPA completes its approval process.
