Herbicide-resistant traits available in soybean continue to increase. It does not seem that long ago that there was either a Roundup Ready or conventional soybean.
There are no less than eight different soybean herbicide resistant traits available today with the most recent being XtendFlex soybean.
It is easy to get confused with all the traits and combinations. Please find below the herbicide trait names and the corresponding herbicide/s that trait gives soybean resistance too. We hope you find this helpful.
