Three things you may not know about LibertyLink soybeans

Did You Know?

  • There is no known herbicide resistance to Liberty. Liberty is a non-selective herbicide that offers broad-spectrum weed control and can offer a valuable tool in the fight against herbicide resistance.
  • Proper coverage is the key. Bayer CropScience recommends 15 to 20 gallons of water per acre with the LibertyLink system. Unlike glyphosate, which will translocate to the root when applied to part of a weed, Liberty is a contact herbicide, meaning it will only kill what it comes in contact with. “That’s why you need to drench the weeds,” said Scott Gaskill, a field sales representative for Bayer CropScience.
  • Yield drag is not an issue with LibertyLink hybrids. “Farmers who grow LibertyLink soybeans report virtually no yield difference between LibertyLink varieties and other soybean varieties,” said Mark Grundmeier, a seed product manager with Latham Hi-Tech Seeds.
