XtendFlex soybeans gain final approval
Bayer’s XtendFlex soybeans are now ready for a full commercial launch in the U.S. and Canada in 2021, after a long-awaited import approval came through from the EU on Monday.
DTN reports that the soybean variety tolerates over-the-top applications of three herbicides: glyphosate, dicamba and glufosinate.
It has been touted by Bayer as its next-generation weed control platform and the company expects to be in a strong position to supply 20 million U.S. soy acres when the selling season arrives
XtendFlex soybeans will be Bayer’s second major product launch in soybeans in the last five years
