Bayer launches new LibertyLink soybeans for 2009

Officials with Bayer CropScience announced this week the commercial launch of LibertyLink soybeans, a nonselective herbicide-tolerant system in soybeans for the 2009 growing season.

LibertyLink soybean varieties, company officials say, will be available through more than 85 seed companies. A rotation with LibertyLink soybeans, according to a company report, will help growers manage or potentially avoid weed resistance while maintaining current production practices.

For the 2009 season, LibertyLink varieties range in relative maturity from 0.5 to 4.9. That range will broaden quickly for 2010 and beyond.

"We expect there will be enough seed stock to accommodate up to one million acres of LibertyLink soybeans next year," says Andy Hurst, Product Manager, Herbicide Tolerant Traits and Ignite herbicide at Bayer CropScience LP.
