Credenz soybean seed made available in U.S.

U.S. soybean farmers will have accessibility to Credenz for the 2016 growing season.

Credenz offers LibertyLink and glyphosate-tolerant traits in more than 55 high-performing varieties to address farmers’ concerns about weed management and yield performance. Bayer CropScience will be expanding the brand nationally, focusing on areas of U.S. soybean production. 

Credenz is the first Bayer CropScience product developed for soybean farmers. The seed is integrated with smart genetics, traits and varieties of new options for fighting weeds and optimizing yield performance. The seed features defensive traits against a wide variety of diseases including frogeye leaf spot, southern stem canker and chloride sensitivity.

“Credenz is now available for soybean growers on a national scale, with characteristics to perform in a variety of soil types and relative maturities, offering growers a customizable platform tailored to meet a wide range of individual production preferences,” Allen Gent, director of U.S. Soybean Seed Operations for Bayer CropScience, said. “Coupled with a robust portfolio of crop protection and SeedGrowth products from Bayer, Credenz can help growers maximize today’s high-performance soybean yield potential.”

Gent said Bayer CropScience is committed to remaining at the forefront of new agricultural product development.

“Bayer CropScience has a long history in the seeds business, including a proven track record in cotton, vegetable and canola seed, along with trait solutions across multiple crops," he said. "That foundation drives our approach to Credenz. We’re proud to have our science at work for even more growers across the U.S. for next growing season.”
