Farmers can look forward to the next generation of the Roundup Ready Xtend Crop System, with approval of Roundup Ready Xtend Flex Soybeans expected in 2020. The current system has helped growers maintain clean fields even in a challenging year, according to Ryan Rubischko, Soybean Portfolio Lead for Bayer Crop Science.
“We know across the Midwest many farmers have had some challenges,” said Rubischko, who was at the 2019 Farm Progress Show. “Planting got delayed because of the wet conditions, and then as planting got delayed, weeds became more of a challenge to deal with. And I think what farmers have really seen is what the value that Roundup Ready Xtend Crop System can provide them in terms of weed control.”
Rubischko said farmers can anticipate wider availability of the next generation system for the 2021 growing season.
