    Stine, UPL announce new herbicide option for soybean growers

    December 09, 2021

    Posted by Stine Seed in Technology

    Yesterday, Stine® and UPL — a leader in global food systems and a top agricultural solutions company — announced a new herbicide option for soybean growers. Motif — a mesotrione-based chemistry — is approved for use with Stine brand LibertyLink® GT27® soybeans. Mesotrione is now the second HPPD inhibitor labeled for use in conjunction with LibertyLink GT27 soybeans.

    About Motif
    Motif offers broad-spectrum weed control coupled with powerful, long-lasting residual control for season-long protection. Motif can be used as an effective site of action before or at planting to ensure optimal weed efficacy. Motif can be combined with additional sites of action, including Metricor or Tricor (metribuzin) and/or Moccasin or Moccasin II Plus brand S-metolachlor, for even more robust weed control against problematic glyphosate-, triazine-, PPO- and ALS-resistant weeds.

    UPL Marketing Manager Tom Mudd notes, “Weed scientists are strongly recommending multiple effective sites of action before or at planting to ensure optimal weed efficacy and weed resistance management — and to relieve the pressure on limited post-emergence options. Motif, when combined with additional sites of action, can be a powerful part of a soybean weed control program.”

    Motif is labeled for use with LibertyLink GT27 soybeans nearly everywhere that soybeans are grown in the U.S.

    Benefits of Stine LibertyLink GT27 soybeans
    Stine LibertyLink GT27 soybeans offer high-yielding, elite genetics with a herbicide-tolerant trait stack that features tolerance to three unique sites of action: glyphosate (pre or post), Liberty® (pre or post) plus Group 27/HPPD inhibitor tolerance to isoxaflutole (pre only, where labeled in limited areas) and mesotrione (pre only).

    Stine LibertyLink GT27 soybeans also have proven performance. In yield trials, Stine LibertyLink GT27 brand soybeans perform equal to or higher than many current brands, mostly in part because of the industry-leading genetics derived from proven germplasm.

    For growers seeking a soybean option that offers maximum control of resistant weeds, extended early-season weed control, non-volatile chemistries, and an ultra-low use rate, consider Stine LibertyLink GT27 soybeans for the 2022 planting season. In fact, Stine’s 2022 season LibertyLink GT27 lineup includes 25 LibertyLink GT27 soybean lines ranging in maturity from Group 0 (04) to Group 4 (40).

    To learn more about Stine’s 2022 LibertyLink GT27 lineup, contact your local Stine sales representative or view the 2022 Stine Seed catalog online.

    *Note: LibertyLink GT27 is not tolerant to all HPPD herbicides. Only HPPD herbicides labeled for use on LibertyLink GT27 or on isoxaflutole-tolerant soybeans and/or mesotrione-tolerant soybeans may be used on LibertyLink GT27 soybeans.
