NK and Golden Harvest Brands to Offer Roundup Ready 2 Xtend Technology

“Divergent standards and requirements can create confusion for seed producers and traders, hindering the global movement of seeds," says Dr. Rose Souza Richards.

Syngenta will sell 12 new soybean seed varieties with dicamba-tolerant soybean technology in its proprietary NK and Golden Harvest brands for 2017 planting.

These new varieties offer Roundup Ready 2 Xtend technology, under a royalty-bearing license from Monsanto, in both brands to provide new options and choices for farmers.

“The launch of NK and Golden Harvest brand soybean varieties with this new technology not only gives farmers a great new weed management option, but the bar for yield performance continues to rise from unique genetics not available anywhere else,” says Scott Erickson, Syngenta soybean seed product manager.

Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans contain the Roundup Ready 2 Yield trait technology stacked with a trait that provides tolerance to dicamba. At this time, there are no dicamba formulations registered for in-crop use in Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans in the United States.
