DILWORTH, Minn. — Thunder Seed, a farmer-owned company focused on top genetic traits and high yields, expands its line of Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® Crop System products with the addition of XtendiMax® herbicide with VaporGripTM technology. It is U.S. EPA registered for in-crop use with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans.
“We are a farmer-first seed company always looking to provide the best quality seed and seed products for our customers,” said Larry Mueller, executive sales director for Thunder Seed. “Our Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® brand of seed already offers strong yields, and the addition of the XtendiMax® herbicide further strengthens our commitment to helping farmers fight weeds.”
XtendiMaxTM herbicide technology produces superior yield performance backed by Roundup Ready 2 Xtend®soybean genetics. The low-volatility herbicide formulations control 270 broadleaves with as much as 14 days residual.
Thunder Seed offers a large selection of Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans varieties available through the Thunder Seed dealer network in both the U.S. and Canada.
“The 2017 growing season is nearly underway, and the approval of this herbicide comes at just the right time for growers to choose their seed,” Mueller said. “Planning for the season starts now, and we know farmers will be excited about this new brand of herbicide for their soybeans.”
Thunder Seed is offering customers an incentive to get to know their seed dealers and get their orders in soon. For every 200 units of Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybean seed purchased, an entry will be placed in a drawing to win a Polaris RANGER®. The drawing will take place in August 2017.
