LibertyLink Real Yield with Joe Mclemore

“Really no comparison at all. We had complete control of resistant weeds that we were absolutely not getting before. That with the pre-emerge, looks like a different farm. It’s excellent. There’s really nothing else out there that compares to it right now. There’s no other product that’s going to give you control of resistant weeds like Liberty does."

Joe Mclemore, Critten County, Arkansas

“It’s very comparable or better than the neighbors so I feel like I’m doing a good job.”
Harold Boehl, Richland, Jasper, Crawford Counties, Illinois

Randy Payne, Wayne County, Illinois

“I was having problems with Roundup-resistant weeds. The weed control was great [with Liberty].”
Ryan Montroy, Randolph County, Illinois

“I have not seen any yield drag. The main thing is you need to match the genetics to what you want.  Just don’t go out and buy LibertyLink beans because it’s LibertyLink. You have to match genetics to your soil, pests and your conditions.”
Keith Woods, Clinton County, Illinois

“We have had good yields with the LibertyLink system and feel like we didn’t give anything up in the yield category. They have been consistently good since we switched.”
Jonathan McGee, Longview, Illinois

Dale Tally, Clark and Edgar Counties, Illinois


LibertyLink Real Yield with Monty Henderson

“Here in the Midwest we get a lot of pressure and you see weed escapes that get out and that’s always been a fear for everyone I think. I especially like it because you rotate chemistry. You are just throwing down a post-emergent product that performs just as well on the weeds that have been escaping your traditional route. There is no yield drag at all that I have observed, I just have had great yields. They’ve been very comparable to my other systems and the varieties I have used have been superb in these last couple years. I have just had some outstanding soybean yields.”

Monty Henderson, Tipton County, Indiana


LibertyLink Real Yield with Chris Gaesser

“It has been really good, we have been very happy with it. Our yields have been very comparable - I mean they are right up there with our top beans, sometimes they are our top beans.”

Chris Gaesser, Adam County, IA

“Oh I have before. I just tell them it’s a pretty good system, easy to use and has good weed control. The seed is cheaper. I don’t think we have any yield reduction, couldn’t see any difference as far as better or worse. It’s kind of hard to compare them on different farms, but I don’t think there is any yield drag at all on the LibertyLink.”
John Scott, Mount Pleasant, Iowa

“It’s just as good as Roundup if not a little better.”
Pat Epley, Bulter County, Iowa

“It’s real good. I have had real good control with it. I’ve been real satisfied with it. I would recommend it.”
Dale Tabbert, Mitchell County, Iowa

“We hear all this talk about resistant weeds, and we don’t have issues with that.  I think rotating the chemistries is a good deal.  That was our big goal for using it.”
Dennis Seyb, Lee County, Iowa

“I was very satisfied. We’re noticing that the waterhemp is hard to kill. The Liberty takes care of it.”
Spence Abrams, Cerro Gordo County, Iowa

“I think it’s pretty darn good.”
Gary Miller, Cass County, Iowa

“The weed control’s been great, just as good as Roundup…With three years’ experience we’ve had great bean yields. There’s no yield drag; there’s nothing to be worried about there, whatsoever.”
Robert Mosinksi, Jefferson County, Iowa


LibertyLink Real Yield with George Sheppard

“Before, I had Roundup beans and I couldn’t kill the weeds so I didn’t have any yields - didn’t amount to anything. And since using LibertyLink, I’ve had pretty good yields.”

George Sheppard, Jefferson County, Kansas

LibertyLink Real Yield with Tracy Mask

Tracy Mask, Shannon, Mississippi

“Similar to the Roundup Ready system, it was a one step process. Ease of application, ease of mixture, wide variety of weeds controlled, two sprays usually on the post application have been doing the trick."
Jon Hutcheson, East Prairie, Missouri

“It’s good. I mean it kills the weeds and that’s what you’re after. And it doesn’t hurt the crop.”
Sam Faulkner, New Madrid County, Missouri

“Liberty doesn’t burn the beans. They just keep on growing. It’s a good product and it gets the job done so yeah I’d recommend it.”
Gary Grerking, Lafayette County, Missouri

“Last year was phenomenal for yields. I know we had yields last year that was up into the 70’s. That’s pretty good for northwest Missouri.”
Matthew Beery, Grundy County, Missouri

“If you’ve have some of those resistant weeds, there really is no other choice.”
Bobby Lavalle, New Madrid County, Missouri

“It’s been pretty good actually, really better than anything else I’ve used recently. Been as good as anything else I’ve planted over the years.  Maybe a little better.”
Dwaine Barnes, Farber, Missouri

“I think Liberty beans are cleaner than the Roundup beans.  There wasn’t a yield cut on them when I went to Liberty.  If anything, I got a little increase in yield and I think it’s just from clean beans.”
Jim Belt, Shelby County, Missouri

“We’ve been having excellent success with Liberty.”
Tim James Lance, Nodaway County, Missouri

“Excellent.  It’s everything we expected.”
Don Meservey, Grundy County, Missouri

“Just as good as Roundup, if not better.”
Rex Watson, Nodaway County, Missouri

Justin Schaper, St. Charles County, Missouri

Read what other growers are saying about the LibertyLink system

“Basically one benefit I’m looking at is there has been a lot more talk about the Roundup-resistant weeds and how to be able to take care of them in soybeans. So I wanted to try and look at something to try and break up their cycle...I thought maybe I should try this to try something else to give the weeds something different to react to.”
Lynn Behl, Hutchinson, South Dakota


LibertyLink Real Yield with David Nichols

“We are satisfied, really pleased with the weed control we were getting, and also the yields. After a couple of years of evaluating, we went to 100% Liberty, and we have been that way ever since.”
