Peterson Farms Seed has announced five new soybean varieties with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend technology. These new products join our robust soybean product line-up that includes high-performance products selected specifically for the challenges faced by farmers in the northern Midwest.
The genetic foundation of these varieties are next generation, providing both agronomic and yield advancement. The Roundup Ready 2 Xtend trait will enable applications of dicamba as well as glyphosate, giving farmers an additional method of managing tough-to-control weeds.
“Peterson Farms Seed brand soybeans with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend technology will allow farmers another mode of action to manage tough-to-control and resistant weeds while still delivering outstanding yield,” says Carl Peterson. “To get an upper-hand on resistance, farmers will need to rotate multiple modes of action.”
We’ve been growing Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans in research plots for several years and are working hard to become this region’s Xtend Xperts. These products are available for reservation now, in anticipation of regulatory approval yet this winter. The technology has already been approved in the U.S. and Canada.
