BASF Launches Herbicide Tolerant Stacked Traits SoybeansAugust 28, 2019
Credenz® soybean with LibertyLink GT27, the first soybean seed technology with herbicide tolerant stacked traits has been launched by BASF. According to BASF, the new soybean seed with the LibertyLink®GT27TM trait platform allows farmers to apply Liberty® herbicide, glyphosate, and pending regulatory approval, a new mode of action herbicide for post-emergence weed control.
"The Credenz® LibertyLink GT27 system combines the maximum yield potential from the elite genetics of Credenz®, with the most effective weed control solutions from LibertyLink, giving farmers greater flexibility in weed management," said Jody Wynia, BASF Product Manager for Traits.
Field trials showed that Credenz LibertyLink GT27 varieties have about two to four bushels per acre average yield advantage over leading commercial soybean trait systems. "With the flexibility to use Liberty and glyphosate, growers can choose the right post-emergence weed control program to match their in-season needs," added Wynia.
