In collaboration with Bayer CropScience, MS Technologies has developed the GT27 Soybean Performance System. Created with high-yielding elite genetics, GT27 Soybeans will give growers exceptional performance coupled with outstanding weed control. GT27 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.

GT27 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®, called LibertyLinkGT27.
