Pioneer to offer Roundup Ready alfalfa

Alfalfa growers in the U.S. will have access to Roundup Ready varieties from Pioneer this year, with the company's limited introduction of variety 54R01. Additional products are scheduled to follow.

According to Pioneer, the Roundup Ready trait provides control of grass and broadleaf with a single glyphosate herbicide, which can lead to cleaner, higher quality hay without risking crop or feed safety.

The company also says the Roundup Ready system enables growers to create a wider, more flexible herbicide application window in both seeding and subsequent years of the stand, eliminating crop rotation limitations associated with in-crop use of persistent herbicides. Roundup herbicide can be applied from planting through five days before cutting.
