The Right Traits

CROPLAN® cotton varieties include leading options for worm control and flexible weed management. Enhanced technology traits include:

Bollgard II

  • Provides the most powerful built-in worm control available to stop most leaf- and boll-feeding worm species.
  • ​Protects first-position cotton bolls from damaging budworms and bollworms.
  • Extends protection for more first- and second-position harvestable bolls.

Roundup Ready Flex

  • Offers more crop safety with increased tolerance to glyphosate during critical crop reproductive stages.
  • Allows for glyphosate applications past the 4-leaf stage — until seven days before harvest.
  • ​Provides cotton producers with more spraying flexibility later in the season.

Bollgard II Xtendflex

  • First triple stack of herbicide-tolerant technologies allows use of glyphosate, glufosinate and dicamba. 2
  • Built on the  Bollgard II® trait, Bollgard II® XtendFlex® provides insect protection in addition to effective weed control.

Bollgard 3 XtendFlex

  • Combines three modes of action for insect control and herbicide tolerance.
  • Helps provide enhanced protection against damage caused by pests such as bollworms and armyworms.
  • XtendFlex® Technology allows for the use of glyphosate, glufosinate and dicamba as a part of your weed management practice.
