In collaboration with BASF, 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 a new HPPD/Group 27 herbicide (pending EPA approval). 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 such as Palmer amaranth, waterhemp and marestail. Glyphosate can be used to combat weeds on contact while the new HPPD/Group 27 herbicide (once approved), 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, the new HPPD/Group 27 herbicide (once approved), and Liberty®, called LibertyLink GT27.
