With so many different herbicide resistant trait platforms being used in soybeans today, it is critical that farmers know which field has each trait platform when it is time to make a herbicide application. A system has been developed that helps farmers and applicators identify fields that are safe for application and those which must be avoided to prevent unintentional damage to the producer’s field or to adjacent crops. This flagging system is called “Flag the Technology.” It was developed by the University of Arkansas and is now a widely accepted practice to reduce the risk of a misapplication.
This week, Jennifer Duffy, Research Specialist, gives an update on this year's Legend Elite Advancement Project (L.E.A.P.) plots. L.E.A.P. is our proprietary, in-house research program. It validates data on hybrid genetic performance over time and agronomic placement. Our L.E.A.P. plots are used for product evaluation, selection, and positioning on the right soil type and in the right geography to consistently deliver high value products to growers.
