High Value of New Branded Seed
Think Before You Bin-Run
The higher yielding trait technology of Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans showed
a 6.1 bushel per acre advantage over original Roundup Ready soybeans
Most soybeans are still covered by a variety patent, and you will not be able to save and plant the seed from those varieties without a license giving you that added right. Check with your seed supplier before saving.
Higher Seeding Rate
Higher seeding rates may be required for bin-run compared to new branded seed
Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield® soybean seed outyielded bin-run Roundup Ready® soybeans by 6.1 bu/A.1
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.
