See XtendFlex® Soybeans at Sept. 6 Field Day
Are you ready for the next new soybean technology? XtendFlex® from Bayer is expected to attain full global approval by mid-spring of 2020.
These soybeans will be the next triple-stack option for farmers, who continue to battle weed resistance. XtendFlex soybeans will be tolerant to glyphosate (Roundup), dicamba (XtendiMax, Engenia, etc.) and gluphosinate (Liberty®) herbicides.
The last hurdle for Bayer to clear is the European Union (EU). All other major soybean importing countries, including China and the Philippines, have granted their approval for this technology. Bayer has recently received a positive opinion from the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), which is a key milestone in preparation for full commercialization in all markets.
Bayer has XtendFlex Ground Breaker Field Trials in place this growing season. In fact, Latham Seeds has an EPA-stewarded trial at our research farm near Alexander, Iowa.
Join us to learn about all the exciting new traits and genetics that Latham offers in corn, soybeans and alfalfa! If you can’t make it to Alexander on September 6, contact your Latham® representative to set up a personal tour. You’re welcome to bring other farmers with you either to our field day or to a personalized tour. Load up the truck and head our way! We look forward to seeing you soon.
