ST. LOUIS – Soybean farmers in the Plains, Midwest and Northeast regions will have more choices for managing weeds and earning financial incentives under the 2012 Roundup Ready PLUS® Weed Management Solutions platform, Monsanto Company announced today. Valent’s Cobra and Phoenix herbicides will provide additional post-emergence weed control and each can earn farmers $3/acre.

The Roundup Ready PLUS platform serves as a resource for recommendations on weed management in Roundup Ready crops backed by third-party endorsements, and offers incentives to farmers for using multiple modes of action in their weed control systems. Soybean farmers can receive up to $10 per acre in incentives under the 2012 platform. Corn farmers are eligible for separate incentives.
