Traits and Technology

Safe, simple, dependable weed control.

Roundup Ready 2 Yield offers the same great weed protection that farmers have come to expect from original Roundup Ready soybeans but with more yield potential. Roundup Ready 2 Yield Soybeans were developed through extensive gene mapping that identified specific DNA regions in soybeans that have a positive impact on yield. Using advanced insertion and selection technologies, the Roundup Ready 2 Yield gene is situated in one of these high-yield DNA regions to deliver high yield potential.
