The team at Monsanto is excited to start talking about their new line of products called Roundup Ready Xtend Crop System. Their goal is to help maximize yield potential and weed control through effective and economical weed management.
During the recent Commodity Classic, Chuck talked with Michelle Vigna, a Monsanto representative, about the product’s features and when growers can take advantage of it’s capabilities.
“The Roundup Ready Xtend Crop System is going to be a future component of our now Roundup Ready PLUS weed management solution that a lot of growers are familiar with. The Roundup Xtend Crop System contains a couple of different elements.”
“We are looking to introduce this system in 2014 for soybeans and 2015 for cotton. And we are really excited about this system bringing a new option for some of these tough weed control challenges that a lot of folks are dealing with.”
Roundup Ready Xtend Crop System is intended to bring growers more consistency and greater control over weeds, especially tough-to-manage and glyphosate-resistant weeds.
