New weed control traits on the way
There will be some new weed control traits on the way for 2013 and beyond. Dow AgroSciences will unveil its Enlist Weed Control System in corn in 2013, followed by soybeans in 2015. BASF and Monsanto plan to unveil their dicamba-tolerant soybeans around mid-decade, while Syngenta and Bayer are working on HPPD-tolerant soybeans later this decade. All three technologies have promise in giving farmers more options to control herbicide-resistant weeds.
