Roundup Ready 2 Xtend Soybeans

Currently in Phase IV of Monsanto’s R&D Pipeline

Official Website:

Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans will provide tolerance to dicamba and glyphosate herbicides, offering farmers more consistent, flexible weed control, especially tough-to-manage and glyphosate-resistant weeds. Once approved, this will be the industry’s first biotech product with tolerance to both glyphosate and dicamba herbicides.

Other product features include:

  • Roundup Ready 2 Xtend technology will be built upon Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield® soybean technology, which offers farmers the highest yield opportunity with more beans per pod and more bushels per acre.
  • Roundup Ready 2 Xtend will be the industry’s first biotech product in soybeans with tolerance to both dicamba and glyphosate herbicides.
