Companies sign on as licensees for Balance GT Soybean Performance System from MS Technologies
May. 2, 2017
“This is exciting news for Balance™ GT,” says Lindsey Seitz, brand manager for MS Technologies™. “With more than 45 licensees already on board and more expressing interest, we’re confident soybean growers will enjoy convenient access to this new soybean technology.”
MS Technologies™ will announce licensees in the coming weeks and encourages those interested to follow or “like” Balance™ GT’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages to stay up to date on licensee announcements.
By offering the Balance™ GT Soybean Performance System, licensees will provide customers with a platform that will deliver not only yield improvements but also simple and effective weed management with long-lasting, residual control. While Balance™ GT soybeans have received all necessary import approvals, the Balance™ GT Soybean Performance System will not be commercially available for the 2017 season, as all required regulatory approvals have not yet been received for Balance® Bean herbicide.
Balance™ GT marks the second collaboration for MS Technologies™ and Bayer, which brought growers the LibertyLink® system in 2009. Balance™ GT will be broadly licensed throughout North America and will provide a strong alternative to current weed management options. In upcoming years, Balance™ GT is expected to evolve into a triple-stacked herbicide-tolerant soybean, Balance™ GTLL, providing tolerance to glyphosate , Balance® Bean and Liberty® herbicides.
