When comparing soybean products, Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield® soybeans offer trait innovation for significantly higher yield potential. The trait technology improves soybean production and minimizes​ weed competition, resulting in more beans per pod and more bushels per acre.

Availability — Product choices to enable yield potential

Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans are available in a broad portfolio of high yielding genetics with great disease packages across maturity zones. This provides great flexibility in decisions and comfort in knowing the product you want is available with Roundup Ready 2 Yield technology.

  • Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans have launched with some products across more maturities than any previous soybean launch. Locally tested and coupled with disease packages suited for specific regions, Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans will be available in maturity groups 0 through IV in the product's first full year of commercial availability.

Control Tough Weeds and Get Clean Fields

Roundup Ready PLUS® Crop Management Solutions recommendations for your Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans offer simple and effective weed control options to help maximize yield potential.

  • Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans paired with residual herbicides, provide maximum weed control for strong yields and greater profit potential
  • The Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System, pending regulatory approvals, will be an advanced weed management tool in the fight against resistant and tough-to-control weeds. The benefits of the system include:
    • Manage resistant and tough-to-control weeds including Palmer amaranth, marestail, waterhemp, lambsquarters and velvetleaf with a dual mode-of-action herbicide
    • Can offer up to 14 days of soil activity1 to help traditional residual herbicides keep fields clean through canopy
    • Provide application flexibility before, at and after planting

Technology — The Yield Standard

Farmers plant Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans for the highest-yielding soybean trait technology available. But not all glyphosate-tolerant soybeans feature the yield-enhancing Roundup Ready 2 Yield trait, so be sure to Look for the 2.

  • Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans are proven to have produced a >4 bu/a advantage over original Roundup Ready® soybeans2 and, when used with Roundup Ready PLUS Crop Management Solutions, are proven to have produced a >3 bu/a advantage over LibertyLink® soybeans3
  • Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans are built on Roundup Ready 2 Yield technology and stacked with a next generation solution for enhanced weed control

Recommendation is as follows:

  1. Scout fields before and after each burndown and in-crop application
  2. Start clean with burndown or tillage
  3. Use multiple overlapping residual herbicides pre-emergence AND post-emergence to help START CLEAN and STAY CLEAN
  4. Use tank mixes of products with multiple, effective sites of action

Overarching Principles of Weed Control for Any System

  • Identify the weed … to select herbicide and manage application timing
  • Go early … spray weeds when they are small to keep them from robbing moisture and nutrients
  • Start clean … by using a pre plant herbicide and residual
  • Manage your equipment … check the settings, lower the boom, slow down, monitor the wind conditions, and use the correct nozzles
