“We’re really excited about the yield potential of Stoneville 4949GLT and Stoneville 4848GLT. What we see is improved yield potential and higher lint percent above Stoneville 4946GLB2 and Stoneville 4747GLB2. Also, the management styles that the growers have learned for Stoneville 4946GLB2 and Stoneville 4747GLB2 will make it easy to transition to these new varieties. We’re really excited to have new higher-yielding varieties with 100% Bayer traits with the GlyTol LibertyLink TwinLink technology.”
