Monsanto debuts Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans

Monsanto’s Asgrow seed subsidiary has launched six genetically modified glyphosate-tolerant Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybean varieties in the US for the 2009 season. All seed will be coated with Monsanto’s Acceleron seed treatment ( Agrow No 552, p 22). The soybeans will be available throughout Iowa, Nebraska, Ohio and Pennsylvania, most of Illinois and Indiana, and parts of Missouri, Kansas, Maryland and Michingan. Monsanto plans a limited introduction on some 1.5 million acres (600,000 ha) in 2009, with a full-scale launch on 5-6 million acres in 2010 ( Agrow passim).
