LibertyLink® Patent Statement

Soybean seeds containing LibertyLink® are protected under multiple U.S. patents and may be planted only to produce one (1) commercial crop, and only after signing a Bayer Grower Technology Agreement. It is illegal to save or catch soybean seeds containing the LibertyLink trait for use as planting seed or for transfer to others for use as planting seed.

NEW SEED VS BIN-RUN

  • All soybean varieties sold by Miller Hybrids, including conventional and Glyphosate tolerant (GT) soybeans, are protected by variety patents that do not allow saving and planting beans for seed unless you are a Licensee of the patent holder for that variety.
  • Higher seeding rates may be required for bin-run compared to new branded seed.
  • Dealer agronomic support before and after the sale with new seed.
  • Loss of seed or shrink occurs during seed cleaning and handling processes for bin-run seed.
  • Income lost by not selling a bushel of soybeans that is saved for planting the next year.
  • Newest seed technology available with new seed from your dealer.
  • Your dealer provides replant policy support, seed delivery, seed treatment options, germination testing and properly stored and conditioned seed.

SOYBEAN PIRACY STATEMENT

Seed containing a patented trait can only be used to plant a single commercial crop from which seed cannot be saved and replanted. Examples of seed containing a patented trait include but are not limited to Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield® soybeans, and Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans. Additional information and limitations on the use of these products are provided in the Monsanto Technology Stewardship Agreement, the Monsanto Technology Use Guide, and 2016 Technology Use Guide Addendum to include Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® Soybean. U.S. patents for Monsanto technologies can be found at the following webpage: http://www.monsantotechnology.com

As of this printing no dicamba herbicide product has been approved for commercial in-crop use with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend™ soybeans. DO NOT APPLY DICAMBA HERBICIDE IN-CROP TO Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® Soybeans in 2016 unless you use a dicamba herbicide product that is specifically labeled for that use in the location where you intend to make the application. While no in-crop use of dicamba is currently approved, some dicamba products may be labeled for weed control prior to planting a crop and subject to minimum plant back restrictions. IT IS A VIOLATION OF FEDERAL AND STATE LAW TO MAKE AN IN-CROP APPLICATION OF ANY DICAMBA HERBICIDE PRODUCT ON Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® Soybeans, OR ANY OTHER PESTICIDE APPLICATION, UNLESS THE PRODUCT LABELING SPECIFICALLY AUTHORIZES THE USE. Contact the U.S. EPA and your state pesticide regulatory agency with any questions about the approval status of dicamba herbicide products for in-crop use with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® Soybeans and follow all pesticide product labeling.

IMPORTANT IRM INFORMATION: Genuity® RIB Complete® corn blend products do not require the planting of a structured refuge except in the Cotton-Growing Area where corn earworm is a significant pest. Always read and follow IRM requirements.

ALWAYS READ AND FOLLOW PESTICIDE LABEL DIRECTIONS. Roundup Ready 2 Xtend Soybeans contains genes that confer tolerance to glyphosate and dicamba. Glyphosate herbicides will kill crops that are not tolerant to glyphosate. Dicamba will kill crops that are not tolerant to dicamba.

Respect the Rotation™ is an initiative to elevate the importance and grower adoptions of herbicide diversity to prevent or manage weed resistance. Glyphosate weed resistance is a dominating threat throughout the United States that affects land values, rental agreements, conservation tillage and can greatly reduce yields. The use of Integrated Weed Management practices, such as use of residuals, pre-emergence herbicides and rotation of crops, traits and herbicides, is critical as no one method is likely to be completely successful.​
