For the 2016 growing season, Bayer CropScience is expanding the Credenz soybean seed brand nationally, with offerings in most of the U.S. soybean production regions, providing growers more choices for complete weed management and competitive yield performance.
Credenz offers LibertyLink and glyphosate-tolerant traits in more than 55 high-performing varieties suited to local growing conditions and tailored to address growers’ individual needs, now in expanded maturity groups 0 through 7.
Piloted last year, Credenz is the first global soybean seed brand from Bayer CropScience. This next-generation soybean offers integrated smart genetics, traits and varieties to deliver new choices for complete weed management and competitive yield performance. Credenz soybeans are bred to thrive in diverse field types and are available with the LibertyLink trait, which combines high-performing genetics with the power of Liberty herbicide for excellent control of even the toughest to control weeds.
The seed also features packages with defensive traits for tolerance to frogeye leaf spot, Sudden Death Syndrome, southern stem canker, Phytophthora root rot, southern root-knot nematode, iron chlorosis, chloride sensitivity, Sclerotinia white mold, brown stem rot and soybean cyst nematode.
Credenz is backed by scientific expertise, a full portfolio of soybean solutions, and a pipeline of innovations from Bayer CropScience to support soybean growers now and in the future. The company is currently working on research projects in seed breeding, traits and crop protection to help growers better address issues including weeds, nematodes, pests, diseases and overall crop efficiency.
