IMPORTANT IRM INFORMATION: RIB Complete® corn blend products do not require the planting of a structured refuge except in the Cotton-Growing Area where corn earworm is a significant pest. Always read and follow IRM requirements.
ALWAYS READ AND FOLLOW PESTICIDE LABEL DIRECTIONS.Roundup Ready® crops 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. Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® Soybeans contains 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. Contact your Monsanto dealer or refer to Monsanto’s Technology Use Guide for recommended Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System weed control programs.

Think Before You Bin RunVerification Required:
Most soybeans are still covered by a variety patent, and you will not be able to save and plant the seed from those varieties without a license giving you that added right. Check with your seed supplier before saving.
New Seed vs. Bin-Run:
- The higher yielding trait technology of Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield® soybeans showed a 6.1 bushel per acre advantage over original Roundup Ready soybeans.
- Higher seeding rates may be required for bin-run compared to new branded seed.
- Income lost by not selling a bushel of soybeans that is saved for planting the next year.
- Highest yielding soybean technology available
- Six soybean trait products anticipated to come from Monsanto in the next 2-7 years
- Leading seed treatment options
- Dealer agronomic support before and after the sale
- Replant policy support
- Convenient packaging and delivery
LibertyLink® Bean Stewardship
RESPECT HERBICIDE TECHNOLOGY
Respect the Rotation™ is an initiative to elevate importance and improve grower adoption of herbicide diversity through the rotation of crops, traits and herbicide classes.
Crop rotation provides opportunity for herbicide diversity
ROTATE HERBICIDE-TOLERANT TRAITS.
Alternative herbicide-tolerant traits or use of herbicide-tolerant stacks for more efficient rotation of both nonselective and selective herbicides.
ROTATE MODES OF ACTION.
Rotate modes of action (MOA) and use multiple MOA to reduce the selection pressure caused by overusing a single MOA.
Respect the Rotation is a trademark of Bayer.
With LibertyLink® you get high-performing genetics coupled with excellent performance on tough-to-control weeds for real yields that deliver. Soybeans with the LibertyLink trait allow growers to spray powerful Liberty® herbicide in-crop for nonselective postemergence control of even the toughest weeds, including Palmer amaranth, giant ragweed, kochia, waterhemp and marestail.
