“The Balance GT Soybean Performance System will benefit soybean growers by providing high-yielding, elite genetics coupled with a double herbicide-tolerant trait stack, protecting against a wide range of broadleaf weeds and grasses,” says Lindsey Seitz, brand manager for MS Technologies.” “We’re excited to showcase Balance GT and the upcoming triple-stack, Balance GTLL, on this year’s tour.”

Experts from the system’s collaborators, MS Technologies and Bayer, will guide attendees through a product overview and in-field stations at each event. System experts and guest speakers will also be on hand to answer any questions regarding the system. To register for the Balance GT events, visit www.balancegtexperience.com, or to register for the Balance GTLL Experience Tour stops, visit www.balancegtllexperience.com.   

Balance GT marks the second collaboration for MS Technologies and Bayer, which brought growers the LibertyLink® system in 2009. Balance GT is collaborating with more than 60 licensees throughout North America that have signed on in preparation to offer Balance GT. In upcoming years, Balance GT will evolve into a triple-stacked herbicide-tolerant soybean, Balance GTLL, providing tolerance to glyphosate, Balance® Bean and Liberty® herbicides. Two of the tour stops this year will focus on Balance GTLL soybeans.

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.
