“As growers look to expand their soybean weed control options, we at Bayer CropScience are proud to be collaborating on the development of this new dual herbicide tolerant trait,” said Allen Gent, Bayer CropScience US Soybean Product Manager and Strategy Lead. “When used in combination with Balance Bean Herbicide Balance GT will offer growers an effective weed control system. Balance GT will be offered in elite soybean genetics, thus enabling growers the opportunity to achieve excellent weed control with strong yields.”

When growing Balance GT soybeans, growers will have the flexibility to use both glyphosate and isoxaflutole during burndown, pre- or post-emergence to achieve broad spectrum weed control of both grasses and broadleaf weeds. Rotating crops, herbicide modes of action and herbicide tolerant traits are good stewardship practices, and three of the best ways growers can achieve effective weed resistance management.

“MS Technologies is also excited to be collaborating on the development of this new option in weed control built upon high-yielding elite soybean genetics,” says Lauren August, MS Technologies Brand Manager. “We know that even the best traits are of little use without yield, which is why we have evaluated hundreds of thousands of lines to be able to soon offer growers the highest-yielding elite genetics with this new dual herbicide-tolerant trait for simple, proven weed control.”

MS Technologies and Bayer CropScience are working together to successfully introduce new soybean products that enable sustainable, high value returns for growers in a challenging global market and climate.
