Xtend cultivation system
This is Tim Hammerich from the Ag Information Network with your Farm of the Future report.
The level of sophistication in modern technology helps farmers maximize their yield. Wes Hayes, Bayer Crop Science North America Soy Product Manager, shares his Roundup Ready Xtend cultivation system.
Hayes… “The Roundup Ready Xtend cropping system, with XtendFlex soybeans, offers triple tolerance to dicamba, glyphosate and glufosinate, which controls more weeds than any other soybean system. Farmers really want the best for their operation, considering two things: yield and weed control. Bayer was the first company to launch a dicamba, glufosinate and glyphosate tolerance trait, and we will continue to offer farmers more choices as we move into the future, anticipating what’s next for our customers.
Hayes says the system is backed by unprecedented investments in research and development.
Hayes… “It’s the performance of the Xtend Flex soybean genetics, plus the exceptional weed control they can find with the system. With these options around the Xtend cropping system, we can control weeds and farmers can get the most out of their operations. The genetics and crop protection system are supported by the largest research and development pipeline in the industry. We have tons of scientists who spend every day waking up thinking about how to bring this kind of innovation to farmers, more yield and systems to effectively control hard to control weeds like water hemp, palm amaranth, maresttail and more.
Another example of agricultural technology driving the industry forward.
