Farmers are Seeing More Three-, Four- and Five-Bean Pods
More beans can mean higher yield. Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield® soybeans have developed more three-, four- and five-bean pods per plant than the competition. Studies also show that Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans have developed greater root biomass, more nodes on the main stem and larger shoot biomass than original Roundup Ready® soybean products. The yield is built right in.
Soybean plants with the Roundup Ready 2 Yield gene tolerate glyphosate applications while attaining higher yield potential as compared to competitive systems.* This control allows farmers to manage weeds during early growth periods without hindering soybean plant growth.
*In moderate to high rootworm pressure situations, SmartStax® RIB Complete® corn blend products provided an average 20 bu/acre advantage over products without Bt corn rootworm protection and an average 10 bu/acre over products without Bt corn rootworm protection used in combination with a soil-applied insecticide. TD Sites in IL, IA, KS, CO, NE, WI, MI, IN, MN, SD, OH, DE (2010-2013)100-112RM; N = 46 protocol site years under moderate and high CRW pressure. Moderate Pressure = untreated check averaged > 0.5-1.0. High Pressure = locations where untreated check averaged > 1.0.
