Verification Required The last patent on the original Roundup Ready® soybean trait expired a few years ago and U.S. farmers may
legally plant saved seed from some varieties of soybean containing the Roundup Ready® soybean trait. However, it is important that you
check with your seed supplier to determine if a specific Roundup Ready® soybean variety is covered by other intellectual property rights,
and if so, the policy for saving seed of that variety.
Higher Seeding Rate A higher seeding rate may be required for bin-run Roundup Ready® soybeans compared to new branded seed.
Yield Loss Roundup Ready 2 Yield® soybean, Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybean, and XtendFlex® soybean varieties typically have a
higher yield opportunity than Roundup Ready® soybean varieties.
Cleanout Loss Loss of seed and/or shrink occurs during the seed cleaning and handling processes for bin-run seed.
Seed Treatment Costs Treating your seed will add costs—both the cost of the treatment and the application of that treatment.
Lost Income Every bushel of saved seed you plant is a bushel you’re not selling as commodity grain.
Increased Seed Management If you plan to save and bin-run Roundup Ready® soybeans for planting, you will have to manage
your harvest operations and grain storage so that the seed isn’t co-mingled with other seed that’s covered by intellectual property rights.
