Monsanto brands dicamba tolerance Xtend
Monsanto has branded its genetically modified dicamba herbicide-tolerant soybeans as Roundup Ready 2 Xtend. The dicamba tolerance trait will be stacked with the Genuity Roundup Ready 2 Yield trait to provide tolerance to dicamba and glyphosate. A new combination of dicamba and glyphosate will be sold as Roundup Xtend. Monsanto has been developing low-volatility formulations of dicamba with BASF, which recently branded its version as Engenia ( Agrow No 633, p 21).
