Seed Piracy Statement

Seeds containing the Glyphosate tolerant trait are protected under numerous United States patents, including Patent No. RE39,247. It is unlawful to save soybeans with the glyphosate tolerant trait for planting or transfer to others for use as a planting seed.

 

ALWAYS READ AND FOLLOW PESTICIDE LABEL DIRECTIONS.
Always follow grain marketing, stewardship practices and pesticide label directions. Varieties that are glyphosate tolerant (including those designated by the letter “R” in the product number) contain genes that confer tolerance to glyphosate herbicides. Glyphosate herbicides will kill crops that are not tolerant to glyphosate.

Always follow grain marketing, stewardship practices and pesticide label directions. Varieties with the Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield® (RR2Y) trait contain genes that confer tolerance to glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup® brand agricultural herbicides. Roundup® brand agricultural herbicides will kill crops that are not tolerant to glyphosate. Genuity®, Roundup® and Roundup Ready 2 Yield® are registered trademarks of Monsanto Technology LLC used under license. Individual results may vary, and performance may vary from location to location and from year to year. This result may not be an indicator of results you may obtain as local growing, soil and weather conditions may vary. Growers should evaluate data from multiple locations and years whenever possible.

^ EXPORT APPROVAL NOTICE:  Prior to planting soybeans with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend™ technology, please be aware that while many import market approvals are in place, grain containing this technology may not be approved in some markets and, as of March 22, 2016, is not approved in the European Union (EU). The trait provider has indicated EU trait stack approval for Roundup Ready 2 Xtend technology is in the final stage of approval and is expected but not guaranteed to be received in the near future. Accordingly, grain and certain by-products produced from soybeans with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend technology cannot enter commodity grain streams destined for unapproved locations, including the EU, until the applicable approval is granted. Growers who use Roundup Ready 2 Xtend technology are required to discuss trait acceptance and grain channeling policies with their local grain handler prior to delivery and should only deliver grain to an elevator that agrees grain and by-products will only be marketed in approved markets. Growers can refer to http://www.biotradestatus.com/ for updated information on import country approvals. Upon anticipated EU approval, DuPont Pioneer will provide to customers who purchased soybeans with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend technology information regarding ongoing Stewardship Requirements for the technology.

As of this printing no dicamba herbicide product has been approved for commercial in-crop use with soybeans with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend technology. DO NOT APPLY DICAMBA HERBICIDE IN-CROP TO SOYBEANS WITH Roundup Ready 2 Xtend technology IN 2016 unless you use a dicamba herbicide product that is specifically labeled for that use in the location where you intend to make the application. While no in-crop use of dicamba is currently approved, some dicamba products may be labeled for weed control prior to planting a crop and subject to minimum plant back restrictions. IT IS A VIOLATION OF FEDERAL AND STATE LAW TO MAKE AN IN-CROP APPLICATION OF ANY DICAMBA HERBICIDE PRODUCT ON SOYBEANS WITH Roundup Ready 2 Xtend technology, OR ANY OTHER PESTICIDE APPLICATION, UNLESS THE PRODUCT LABELING SPECIFICALLY AUTHORIZES THE USE. Contact the U.S. EPA and your state pesticide regulatory agency with any questions about the approval status of dicamba herbicide products for in-crop use with soybeans with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend technology and follow all pesticide product labeling.
ALWAYS READ AND FOLLOW PESTICIDE LABEL DIRECTIONS.
Soybeans with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend technology contain genes that confer tolerance to glyphosate and dicamba. Glyphosate herbicides will kill crops that are not tolerant to glyphosate. Dicamba will kill crops that are not tolerant to dicamba.
