Good news for growers -- Ignite® herbicide and the LibertyLink® trait

Now there’s a nonselective alternative to glyphosate-tolerant systems: introducing new Ignite® herbicide and the LibertyLink® trait. LibertyLink combines crop safety with built-in tolerance to fast-acting Ignite herbicide.

Ignite herbicide controls more than 120 broadleaf weeds and grasses including ALS- and glyphosate-resistant weeds.

What’s more, there is no documented resistance worldwide to the unique mode of action of Ignite. That’s news you can use. Ignite herbicide and the LibertyLink trait is the only nonselective alternative to glyphosate-tolerant systems.

LibertyLink hybrids and varieties have built-in tolerance to Ignite herbicide, providing excellent crop safety.

Ignite herbicide and the LibertyLink trait provide an excellent means for growers to rotate nonselective herbicides to effectively manage weed resistance and preserve the utility of herbicide-tolerant technologies.

LibertyLink trait technology is part of a growing crop production pipeline available from Bayer CropScience.

Bayer CropScience offers one of the industry’s largest portfolios of crop-production products and is committed to research and development to stay at the forefront of innovative seed, trait and crop-protection solutions.
