2018 Yield Comparisons of Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® Soybean Products to Liberty Link® Soybean Products – Missouri
Weed control in soybean continues to be a challenge as difficult-to-control and herbicide-resistant weed populations continue to develop.
The objective of this study was to compare the yields of Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybean products to competitor LibertyLink® soybean products.
Research Site Details
Herbicide programs specific to each location were used to create trials with minimal weed pressure. All plots at each location received the same herbicide treatments.
Trials were small plots with three replications at each site.
Each treatment was two rows (30-inch rows) wide and 15 feet long.
Understanding the Results
For the mid and late maturity groups, strong performance of the Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybean products was observed when compared to the LibertyLink® soybean products.
