NuTech is synonymous with “new technology” and that is certainly true in soybeans. The two leading biotech herbicide systems in soybeans are both available through NuTech. NuTech is introducing a number of new great looking soybeans with the LibertyLink® technology this year that are a step change in performance compared to older varieties. G2® Genetics brand varieties developed with Accelerated Yield Technology (AYT™) system promise some exciting new yield advancements and new product components in seed treatments round out the technology advancements. Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® has hit the market and we are also offering Roundup Ready 2 Yield®. NuTech Seed is breaking barriers to offer cutting edge technologies and products for every need and budget.
NuTech Seed strives to bring the best product forward through extensive testing and research across multiple geographies and environments. At NuTech Seed we understand not every acre is created equal, or every grower has the same need. Testing multiple technologies plays an important role in ensuring growers receive the highest return from every bag of NuTech Seed soybeans they plant. We take pride in our portfolio and the ability to offer a range of technologies for every grower's needs.
Soybeans with the LibertyLink® trait is a relatively new herbicide biotech trait that gives soybeans tolerance to Liberty® herbicide. Liberty® is a contact herbicide and does require some additional management practices for excellent weed control, but it is an effective alternative to glyphosate to provide an additional mode of action for your weed control challenges. Bayer CropScience is promoting soybeans with the LibertyLink® trait as an alternative to soybeans with the Roundup Ready® trait in non-selective herbicide use as well as areas resistance to glyphosate has developed.
Soybeans with the Glyphosate tolerant trait were first introduced in 1996 and have grown to a 98%+ market share in the United States. The use of glyphosate herbicide on the soybean crop has allowed exceptional weed free fields and has become a standard herbicide treatment for most Midwest soybean farmers. Simplicity, convenience, and effectiveness are three powerful advantages that provide value regardless of operation size or business objectives- soybeans with the Glyphosate tolerant trait deliver all three. NuTech has established a long running yield performance track record and has an unmatched lineup of soybeans with the Glyphosate tolerant trait through all maturities with an outstanding array of traits. NuTech recommends growers utilize sound Integrated Pest Management practices when it comes to soybean weed control to help prevent the development of glyphosate weed resistance and keep this important technology viable for generations to come.
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.

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.
