Developed by MS Technologies™ and Bayer, the Balance™ GT Soybean Performance System offers soybean growers high-yielding, elite genetics coupled with a double herbicide-tolerant trait that will confer tolerance to glyphosate and isoxaflutole — the active ingredient in the new Balance® Bean herbicide. Balance™ GT will help combat a broad spectrum of grasses and broadleaves, including glyphosate-, triazine-, PPO and ALS-resistant weeds. Growers will also enjoy the long-lasting residual control provided by Balance® Bean, as well as its unique reactivation technology which will help effectively control target weeds through canopy closure.
Balance™ GT recently received trait approval from China — the last major import approval needed for Balance™ GT soybeans. This announcement brings the system one step closer to commercialization; however, the full system will not be immediately available until the required regulatory approvals have been received for Balance® Bean herbicide.
Once full approval is granted for the Balance™ GT Soybean Performance System, Stine looks forward to offering Balance™ GT soybeans to growers throughout the United States.
“At Stine, we’re committed to giving growers choices for their operations. Balance™ GT soybeans will be a great addition to our soybean lineup,” notes David Thompson, national sales and marketing director for Stine. “It represents a forward-thinking solution, packaged in high-yielding, elite genetics. This is a positive step forward for the soybean industry.”
The Balance™ GT system will build upon many soybean growers’ current preferred glyphosate-based programs, offering growers choice for their acres with a simple and effective weed control product. When combined with Balance® Bean, the Balance™ GT Soybean Performance System offers growers a non-volatile, high-yielding option for better per-acre profits.
