"Continued delivery of new technologies, such as Roundup Ready 2 Yield, to increase the productivity of Illinois soybean farmers is critical for keeping us among the most productive farmers in the world," said Illinois Soybean Association Vice Chairman Ron Moore. "We are excited and energized that Illinois is at the forefront of delivering innovation to U.S. agriculture."
Monsanto's Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans will be introduced as part of a controlled commercial release on 1 million to 2 million U.S. acres this year. In 2010, the trait is expected to be planted on 5 million to 6 million U.S. acres across a broader spectrum of maturity groups.
