Bayer CropScience today announced the introduction of 12 new CredenzTM soybean varieties featuring the LibertyLink® trait.
The new varieties are specifically tailored for growers in the Mid-South, Mid-Atlantic and Southern U.S. regions and are available immediately for the 2015 growing season to help growers maximize performance and fight glyphosate-resistant weeds.
The new varieties represent relief for growers in the south where there are limited options for combatting glyphosate resistant weeds. Through the new line-up of Credenz varieties, LibertyLink® will now be more widely available to southern growers in more maturity groups than previously available.
Launched in 2014, Credenz is Bayer CropScience’s first global soybean seed brand and integrates smart genetics and traits to help soybeans grow stronger and heartier under a wide variety of growing conditions. Over the next few years, Bayer CropScience will invest more than $1 billion in R&D annually, helping to fuel the company’s well-filled product pipeline to continue to bring growers new, innovative products to meet their challenges.
“As weed resistance continues to spread, it is more important than ever to ensure growers have a wide range of options in their arsenal to ensure a long-term sustainable approach to integrated weed management on their farm,” said Diego Angelo, global soybean seed marketing manager, Bayer CropScience. “Bayer is committed to driving innovation in the ever-expanding U.S. soybean market, and our smart genetics and traits help soybeans grow stronger under a wide variety of growing conditions.”
