Bayer CropScience makes Credenz soybean seed available nationally

Will be available for the 2016 growing season

By Diego Flammini,

Bayer CropScience is expanding the Credenz soybean seed breed and will make it available throughout the United States, giving soybean producers more choices for weed management and potential for higher yields.

"Credenz is now available for soybean growers on a national scale, with characteristics to perform in a variety of soil types and relative maturities, offering growers a customizable platform tailored to meet a wide range of individual production preferences," said Allen Gent, Director, U.S. Soybean Seed Operations, Bayer CropScience in a press release. "Coupled with a robust portfolio of crop protection and SeedGrowth products from Bayer, Credenz can help growers maximize today's high-performance soybean yield potential."


The seed is available in packages with defensive packages to frogeye leaf spot, Sudden Death Syndrome, southern stem canker, Phytophthora root rot, southern root-knot nemadote, iron chlorosis, chloride sensitivity, Sclerotinia white mold, brown stem rot and cyst nematode.

"Bayer CropScience has a long history in the seeds business, including a proven track record in cotton, vegetable and canola seed, along with trait solutions across multiple crops," said Gent. "That foundation drives our approach to Credenz. We're proud to have our science at work for even more growers across the U.S. for next growing season."

Bayer  said they’re also working with industry partners to develop new soybean traits within the next five years. Included are two herbicide-resistant traits called Balance GT, which would provide resistance to glyphosate and Balance Bean herbicide, and Balance GT/LibertyLink that can provide resistance to glyphosate, Balance Bean and Liberty herbicide.
