At the 2018 Farm Progress Show, BASF launched Credenz® soybean with LibertyLink® GT27, the first soybean seed technology with herbicide-tolerant stacked traits that allows growers to apply both Liberty® herbicide and glyphosate over the top of soybeans for post-emergence control of broadleaf and grass weeds.
“It’s very exciting for the Credenz brand,” said Marc Hoobler, BASF Soybean Agronomy Lead. “We’re only a four year old brand, but last year we were the 10th most planted soybean seed brand in the U.S.”
Recent BASF field trials have demonstrated that Credenz LibertyLink GT27 varieties can have as much as two to four bushels per acre average yield advantage over leading commercial soybean trait systems.
“We believe that growers need to have choices in their weed management programs,” said Hoobler. “We know resistance is increasing across the U.S. and we want to make sure growers steward their products and at the same time have the highest producing soybean acres that they possibly can.”
