Roundup ready 2 Xtend™ System Update

(Viking 2099RXN and 2110RXN)

With China approving Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans, but the EPA still reviewing the herbicide developed for the production system, we’ve fielded questions about herbicide options for these soybeans, pending EPA label approval. At this point, the use of dicamba herbicides is not currently approved for in-crop use in Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans. Please review the weed control recommendations provided below, and discuss specific options and recommendations with us or your agronomist.

Weed Control Recommendations:

  • Follow existing weed management practices for soybeans from the Roundup Ready PLUS® Crop Management Solutions platform:
    • Scout fields before and after each burndown and in-crop application.
    • Start clean with burndown or tillage*.
    • Use traditional residual herbicides with different effective sites of action pre- and post-emergence.
    • Use tank-mixes of products with multiple sites of action.
  • Monsanto will update Roundup Ready PLUS weed management recommendations when product registrations are approved for commercial in-crop use.
  • For more information on management recommendations and incentives, visit
* Dicamba products currently registered for preplant burndown applications may be used in Roundup Ready® 2 Xtend Crop Systems consistent with product label directions, including plant-back restrictions.
