The new herbicide-tolerant trait technology allows growers to continue farming the way they want, but with improved weed control capabilities and performance. The system is designed to provide excellent control of glyphosate-resistant and other hard-to-control broadleaf weeds like morning glory, pigweeds including palmer amaranth, lambsquarters, marestail, waterhemp, giant and common ragweed, and velvetleaf. In anticipation of regulatory approvals for its herbicide-tolerant trait technology, Dow AgroSciences is developing new and improved herbicide solutions based on the proven, trusted 2,4-dichlorophenoxy acetic acid technology growers have used successfully for more than 60 years.
When stacked together, the Optimum® GAT® trait from Pioneer and the new herbicide-tolerant trait technology being developed by Dow AgroSciences would produce soybeans that are tolerant to 2,4-D, glyphosate and ALS herbicides. The Optimum® GAT® trait from Pioneer provides tolerance to glyphosate and the ALS class of herbicides. Optimum® GAT® soybeans have received U.S. regulatory approvals and a 2011 introduction is anticipated upon regulatory approvals in key importing countries. DuPont also anticipates the introduction of five new ALS-based herbicide products for Optimum® GAT® soybeans, including DuPont™ Freestyle™, Trigate™, Traverse™, Instigate™, and Diligent™ herbicides, upon U.S. and state approvals.
