Trait technology to soybean portfolio for Syngenta
By Top Crop Manager
Syngenta Canada has introduced Roundup Ready 2 Xtendtrait technology in its soybean varieties. The trait provides tolerance to both glyphosate (Group 9) and dicamba (Group 4) herbicides, allowing growers to use multiple modes of action to help manage tough to control weeds including glyphosate-resistant giant ragweed, common ragweed and Canada fleabane.
The company also plans to launch several new Roundup Ready 2 Xtend varities in fall 2017 for the 2018 planting season and will also be transitioning existing varieties from the Genuity Roundup Ready 2 Yield platform to the Xtend platform.
