BASF has launched Credenz soybean with LibertyLink GT27, the first soybean seed technology with herbicide-tolerant stacked traits. It allows growers to apply both Liberty herbicide and glyphosate over the top of soybeans for post-emergence control of broadleaf and grass weeds.
“The Credenz LibertyLink GT27 system combines the maximum yield potential from the elite genetics of Credenz, with the most effective weed control solutions from LibertyLink, giving farmers greater flexibility in weed management,” said Jody Wynia, BASF Product Manager, Traits.
The Credenz seed comes from germplasm with proven yield performance in the most challenging growing environments. Recent BASF field trials have demonstrated that Credenz LibertyLink GT27 varieties have about two to four bushels per acre average yield advantage over leading commercial soybean trait systems. Results may vary.
“With the flexibility to use Liberty and glyphosate, growers can choose the right post-emergence weed control program to match their in-season needs,” said Wynia.
LibertyLink GT27 is not tolerant to all HPPD herbicides. Use of HPPD herbicides currently on the market are prohibited for use with LibertyLink GT27 soybeans. Growers are encouraged to talk to their local BASF representative for more information.
