New Bayer Varieties Focus on High Yield
USAgNet - 01/11/2018

Yield rules the day and gin turnout adds to the power of five new Bayer varieties that will be available in limited quantities for 2018 planting.

"Choosing the right variety for the right field to harvest the right yield is paramount to successfully managing a cotton crop," says Jason Wistehuff, Bayer product manager for FiberMax and Stoneville cotton. "We set growers up for success by giving them the options they need to choose the right variety for each field. These new varieties combine with our existing variety lineup to ground the season in sound science. Growers apply their management skills to these variety options to make the right choices for their farm."

"Our variety lineup is proof of our commitment to deliver varieties with the high yield potential, premium quality, herbicide tolerance and disease and insect resistance growers need to choose the right seed for the right field," Wistehuff says. "Growers need high-performing varieties to set the stage for a successful season. When growers succeed, we succeed."

Each of the five varieties offers the proven, flexible weed management that growers rely on from FiberMax and Stoneville cotton: LibertyLink and GlyTol.

LibertyLink arms growers with the ability to apply Liberty herbicide in-season. Liberty herbicide, used in an effective herbicide program in LibertyLink crops, has been proven to provide the most effective broad-spectrum control of challenging weeds, including weed species resistant to other herbicides, such as Palmer amaranth (pigweed), marestail, morning glory, kochia and annual grasses.

GlyTol provides the flexibility of over-the-top glyphosate herbicide treatment and delivers proven crop safety to various glyphosate formulations with no impact on yield, quality or plant height.

For protection from worms, TwinLink and TwinLink Plus traits provide Bt protection against major lepidopteran pests, such as tobacco budworm, cotton bollworm, pink bollworm and beet armyworm. TwinLink offers two-gene protection. TwinLink Plus provides three-gene protection, which increases resistance management and decreases the likelihood that a crop will need to be treated for worms.
