Southern Soybean Farmers Gain Weed Management Options with Roundup Ready Plus

Soybean farmers in the South will have more choices for managing weeds and earning financial incentives under the 2012 Roundup Ready PLUS® Weed Management Solutions platform, Monsanto Company announced today. Valent's Cobra and Phoenix and Syngenta AG's Flexstar herbicides will provide additional post-emergence weed control and can earn farmers $3/acre, $3/acre and $2/acre, respectively.

The Roundup Ready PLUS platform serves as a resource for recommendations on weed management in Roundup Ready crops backed by third-party endorsements, and offers incentives to farmers for using multiple modes of action in their weed control systems. Soybean farmers can receive up to $10 per acre in incentives under the 2012 platform.

"Roundup Ready PLUS continues to improve based on academic recommendations and farmer experience," said Chris Reat, Roundup Marketing Manager. "This season, we're adding more choices and increasing the total dollar amount per acre a farmer can receive. Most importantly, Roundup Ready PLUS continues to represent a sustainable, effective and economical weed control strategy supported by many industry academics."

The following areas qualify for a $2.00 per acre Flexstar® soybean incentive: Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia and the following counties in Missouri: Bollinger, Butler, Cape Girardeau, Dunklin, Madison, Mississippi, New Madrid, Pemiscot, Ripley, Scott, Stoddard and Wayne.

In addition to Valent and Syngenta AG, the Roundup Ready PLUS platform partners include FMC Corporation, Makhteshim Agan of North America, Inc. (MANA), and AMVAC Chemical Corporation. Each of the industry partners supply important products to the Roundup Ready PLUS platform including both pre- and post-emergence herbicides.
