Growing the Future Together
With constant changes in the field and ever-increasing herbicide resistance throughout the
country, Bayer recognizes that farmers need to be equipped with an array of
tools to fight challenging conditions specific to their fields.
The LibertyLink® system was created to bring the dual action of Liberty® herbicide’s
better weed control together with the high-performing genetics of LibertyLink
for real yield, and Bayer continues to invest in products that work
together to fight anything you might encounter in your fields now and in the future.
With more than 60 million acres of corn, cotton,
soybeans and canola now having the LibertyLink
trait, it is anticipated that the number of acres will double across multiple crops in the next few years. Liberty herbicide is certain to become an important tool in your weed management toolbox. Supporting its customers’
need for powerful weed control now and in the future, Crop Science, a division of Bayer, has announced an investment
of nearly $500 million globally to double the production and supply of Liberty to meet demand. Production is set to begin in mid-2017.
The Balance™ GT* Soybean Performance System couples high-yielding, elite genetics with a double herbicide-tolerant trait stack for maximum yield potential and weed control. The Balance GT system gives growers the flexibility to use both glyphosate and Balance® Bean** for burndown and pre-emergence applications. The system is anticipated for commercial release in 2017, pending regulatory approvals.
Balance GT/LL is a premier herbicide trait system that
allows growers to experience the superior benefits of
Balance® Bean while enjoying the flexibility of using either
Liberty or glyphosate in their crop. Growers gain peace
of mind by having the most comprehensive weed control
system available without volatility concerns. Anticipated
approval of Balance GT/LL is 2018.
Balance Bean herbicide, as part of the Balance GT
system, offers growers a new, selective herbicide for
- Proven burndown and residual control
- Flexible application window
- Reactivation capabilities
- Nonvolatile chemistries
- Wide spectrum control of grasses and broadleaf weeds
*Developed with MS Technologies.
