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.
