New soybean research gives mod to LibertyLink

“I've been using the LibertyLink system and I've been very happy with it," farmer Douglas Huggenberger said.

For the second year in a row, LibertyLink outperformed Roundup Ready 2 Yield in trials to determine which herbicide would produce a higher yield.

“We wanted growers to be able to look at the two systems and know how they compare,” Pablo Ogallar, Bayer soybean product manager, said. “This was an apples-to-apples comparison, and this is the second consecutive year that LibertyLink soybeans varieties out-yielded Roundup Ready 2 Yield varieties.”

The trials were conducted in a variety of locations, in different conditions and in different soils.

“I've been using the LibertyLink system and I've been very happy with it," farmer Douglas Huggenberger said. "I have yet to find a weed that it can’t knock down, unlike when I was using a different system. I was having a few escapee weeds so I wanted to change up my weed management, so that’s why I went to the Liberty system and it’s working great.

"Last year, I had the best beans I’ve ever harvested. As for seeing any yield drag - I've never seen a yield drag on the Liberty beans at all. People have asked me if I’ve had any yield drag and I tell them I have had no yield drag and that Liberty works great. It's an excellent system.”
