Bayer and MS Technologies have been collaborating since 2007 with new herbicide tolerance technologies for soybeans.
Currently, more than 90 percent of soybeans grown in the US are genetically modified and tolerant to either glyphosate or glufosinate (LibertyTM) herbicides. Balance GT is expected to be one of the first dual-herbicide tolerant products for soybeans on the market in the U.S. and an important alternative to current solutions.
