ALWAYS READ AND FOLLOW PESTICIDE LABEL DIRECTIONS. It is a violation of federal and state law to use any pesticide product other than in accordance with its labeling. NOT ALL formulations of dicamba or glyphosate are approved for in-crop use with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans. NOT ALL formulations of dicamba, glyphosate or glufosinate are approved for in-crop use with products with XtendFlex® Technology. ONLY USE FORMULATIONS THAT ARE SPECIFICALLY LABELED FOR SUCH USES AND APPROVED FOR SUCH USE IN THE STATE OF APPLICATION. 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 or products with XtendFlex® Technology.

B.t. products may not yet be registered in all states. Check with your seed brand representative for the registration status in your state.

IMPORTANT IRM INFORMATION: 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. See the IRM/Grower Guide for additional information. Always read and follow IRM requirements.

Roundup Ready® 2 Technology contains genes that confer tolerance to glyphosate. Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans contain genes that confer tolerance to glyphosate and dicamba. Products with XtendFlex® Technology contains genes that confer tolerance to glyphosate, glufosinate and dicamba. Glyphosate will kill crops that are not tolerant to glyphosate. Dicamba will kill crops that are not tolerant to dicamba. Glufosinate will kill crops that are not tolerant to glufosinate. Contact your seed brand dealer or refer to the Bayer Technology Use Guide for recommended weed control programs.

Important: Always read and follow label and bag tag instructions; only those labeled as tolerant to glufosinate may be sprayed with glufosinate ammonium based herbicides.

Optimum AQUAmax® product performance in water-limited environments is variable and depends on many factors such as the severity and timing of moisture deficiency, heat stress, soil type, management practices and environmental stress as well as disease and pest pressures. All hybrids may exhibit reduced yield under water and heat stress. Individual results may vary.

The GDM soybean products (including any conventional (non-GMO) soybean products) have been developed by GDM through decades of elite soybean breeding, with the sole intent to create elite oybean germplasm and produce high-yielding varieties. Bringing about these seed products has taken – and will continue to take – time, effort and investment by GDM and its suppliers. Such products are covered by intellectual property, including trademarks, pending plant variety certificates, confidential information, trade secrets, and pending patents. Grower shall not retain, hold back, clean, condition, sell (except as grain for feed or processing), transfer, or use any unused seed or its progeny (colloquially known as “saved seed” or “bin run”) during any subsequent planting seasons beyond the planting season in which the applicable unit(s) of seed product(s) was acquired. In addition, research and breeding with the products and its progeny is strictly prohibited.

Growers must sign a GDM™ SEEDS USE AGREEMENT for the purchase of any DONMARIO soybean product not covered by a third party trait provider’s use agreement. Even if some products do not contain biotech traits, the GDM™ SEEDS USE AGREEMENT protects the intellectual property associated with non-biotech products such as germplasm and other intellectual know-how. Remember that the agreements you need to sign are dependent on what seed you purchased. For more information, visit www.AgCelerate.com or contact your Burrus Seed Representative.
