RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. — Focused on providing the right soybean variety to fit local grower needs, BASF is adding 43 new varieties to its 2020 Credenz seed lineup.

Credenz is now the 10th most planted soybean seed in the United States, offering over 75 varieties nationally and over 45 varieties for Midwest growers.

“We developed so many new varieties this year to offer growers more agronomic solutions and multiple modes of action through advanced trait technology,” said Monty Malone, BASF soybean variety development lead.

“Over half of the new varieties have the LibertyLink GT27 trait, which is the first commercial trait allowing the use of both Liberty herbicide and glyphosate on the same acre at the same time to help prevent resistant weeds.”

Growers can utilize the LibertyLink GT27 trait platform and different agronomic solutions by planting the right Credenz variety for their field.

“Growers in the north should keep their eye on CZ 2040GTLL. It’s a top-end yield performer with Phytophthora root rot tolerance along with a solid rating for sudden death syndrome,” Malone said.

“Throughout the rest of the Midwest, CZ 3309GTLL is very versatile and has proven to be our most broadly adapted variety to an array of environmental conditions.”
