In collaboration with Bayer CropScience, MS Technologies has developed the Balance™ GT Soybean Performance System. Created with high-yielding elite genetics, Balance™ GT Soybeans will give growers exceptional performance coupled with outstanding weed control. Balance™ GT Soybeans will be tolerant to both glyphosate and isoxaflutole, the active ingredient in new Balance® Bean. These two chemistries will ensure protection against a variety of weeds, with exceptional performance against both broadleaf weeds and grasses, including such difficult-to-control weeds as Palmer amaranth, waterhemp and marestail. Glyphosate can be used to combat weeds on contact while Balance® Bean herbicide, with its unique reactivation feature, will continue to provide powerful coverage from application through canopy closure.
Balance™ GT will be the first step in a foundational system that will grow to include a triple-stacked trait with tolerance to glyphosate, Balance® Bean and Liberty®.
