Ty Fowler, Deltapine® Product Development Manager, introduced the Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System for cotton during the Weed Resistance and Water Management Summit in Lubbock, Texas. This product will be branded as Bollgard II® XtendFlex cotton, and will be the fourth component of the Roundup Ready Xtend Crop System, which will be a future component of Roundup Ready PLUS® Weed Management Solutions. It will be the industry’s first biotech-stacked trait product in cotton providing herbicide tolerance to dicamba, glyphosate and glufosinate. Bollgard II XtendFlex is being designed to give growers a more flexible weed weed management system by giving them more choices of pre- and post- emergence herbicides.

In addition to the cotton product, the Roundup Ready Xtend Crop System will include a soybean product that contains tolerance to dicamba and glyphosate. It will also include two herbicide options: Roundup Xtend herbicide and XtendiMax herbicide. Roundup Xtend herbicide will be an enhanced dicamba and glyphosate herbicide premix. XtendiMax herbicide will be a solo low-volatility dicamba formulation. Regulatory approvals are still pending for all four products, and none are available for commercial sale or distribution.
