The Roundup Ready Flex trait offers exactly what the name says – flexibility. It extends the over-the-top application period of Roundup® brand agricultural herbicides from burndown to seven days before harvest and helps target more grass and broadleaf weeds to reduce pressure on yield.
Other benefits include:
- Increased flexibility in managing weeds.
- A broad-spectrum weed control system.
- Reduced labor costs for farmers due to less sprays.
- Spraying over the top past the fourth-leaf stage, which can reduce dependence on shields or hooded sprayers.
- Enhanced crop safety during sensitive cotton reproductive stages.
- Ability to tailor herbicide applications to weed height or stage instead of the cotton stage of development.
