With harvest well underway in Region 8, we’ve been hearing a lot of talk about LibertyLink® soybeans. While yields have been all over the board throughout the region, I’ve seen a lot of Stine 38LE02 LibertyLink fields thriving, with some even averaging in the 80s.
Most of the talk, however, has been centered on weed control and having an alternative mode of action for 2016. LibertyLink soybeans combined with Liberty® herbicide offer an excellent option for growers when rotation is necessary to effectively manage weed resistance. The system controls more than 120 broadleaf weeds and grasses, including ALS- and glyphosate-resistant weeds. Additionally, the LibertyLink system is the only available nonselective alternative to glyphosate-tolerant systems and has no yield drag or lag.
Stine will have plenty of LibertyLink beans around next year, and with as much interest as we’re seeing in the system, we look forward to working with growers on their options for 2016. To view all of our varieties available for next year, visit http://www.stineseed.com/soybeans/.
