Information below provides more details about Roundup Ready Technology and Requirements:
BENEFITS OF BUYING NEW SEED:
Purchasing new seed is a convenient way to ensure getting the most elite germplasm of the highest quality.
New seed is provided in a range of maturities and yields much higher than bin run seed. Our seed meets
strict quality standards, and you can rest assured that every bag is professionally handled and rigorously
tested. Buying new seed ensures excellent germination, freedom from weeds, dramatically reduces splits,
reduces foreign matter and ensures varietal purity through official plant board testing and US Federal Seed
ECONOMICS OF NEW VS BIN RUN SEED:
The average loss associated with clean-out is 10-15% for bin run soybeans. People who use bin run seed
would have to plant 15% more seed, not to mention the increased cost of additional herbicide applications to
handle the increased weed population. New seed yields 1.8 bu/acre more than bin–run seed.
Handling/transportation costs of bin run seed are about 35¢ to 75¢ higher.
LIMITED WARRANTY BENEFITS OF NEW SEED:
With new seed, you get dealer agronomic support before and after the sale. With the purchase of Roundup
herbicide, you can participate in the Roundup Ready rewards program which has paid out over $600 M to
growers since 1997.
NEW SEED SUPPORTS NEW INNOVATION:
Monsanto is 100% commited to ag. In 2010 they had 4 commercial product launches and 11 advanced stage
high impact products. GM products have contributed $3.861 billion in increased national farm income; GM
soybeans contributed $1.56 billion.
NEW INNOVATIONS BENEFIT FARMERS:
ASTA’s Beyond the Seed Program raises awareness of the value that goes beyond the seed. The future
success of US agriculture depends upon quality seed delivered by an industry commitment to innovation and
performance through continued investment. For more information about seed technology, visit ASTA’s Beyond
the Seed Program at www.beyondtheseed.org. Stronger intellectual property rights in the seed sector are
associated with higher yield growth. Monsanto’s preliminary estimate is that farmers get a $6 benefit for each
$1 spent on private sector research.
