The occurrence of more 3, 4 and 5 bean pods per plant is contributing to the increased yields seen with Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield® Soybeans.
Monsanto researchers compared Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield® products to a wide range of first-generation Roundup Ready® Soybeans from Pioneer, NK and Monsanto in 2009.
Results of the study showed that Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield® Soybeans had greater root biomass, more nodes on the main stem, and larger shoot biomass compared to first-generation Roundup Ready Soybeans.
Ultimately, Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield® Soybean varieties provided higher yields by producing more beans per pod.
Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield® Soybeans delivered a >4 Bu/A advantage* vs. Pioneer® Y Series
