“I would definitely recommend FM 1944GLB2 to other growers because it offers high yields and excellent grades. We produced about 1,400 pounds to the acre with FM 1944GLB2, and the loan value was several cents higher than my other varieties. On top of that, the GlyTol LibertyLink herbicide trait package allows us to spray Liberty herbicide or glyphosate to control a broad spectrum of weeds.” Paul Peacock Winchester, Arkansas

“In 2011 in my CAP trial, I was fortunate enough to plant a variety in the trial that is a GlyTol and LibertyLink variety that you can spray glyphosate or Ignite herbicide over the top all year long. That’s a great benefit to the farmer, because you have more than one mode of action to go after the pigweed. The cotton yielded very well, and it’s just great to have a new variety coming that you’ll have more than one mode of action to go after a problem.” Justin Gathright Monette, Arkansas

“In Arkansas, we’ve had a weed resistance problem. The old programs just weren’t working. We’ve used the LibertyLink system with our cotton and soybean acres. We were very pleased with Stoneville cotton and we will continue to use the LibertyLink program.” Stewart Weaver Edmondson, Arkansas

“ST 4145LLB2 had the yield that we were looking for in 2011—it ranged from 1,150 to 1,300 pounds. And with the LibertyLink trait in it, it took care of the glyphosate-resistant weed problem. I think it’s going to be a really good variety for this area.” Tommy Wilkins Hornersville, Missouri

“ST 5288B2F has yielded really well for us. It out-yielded the competitor varieties by as much as 150-200 pounds. Under dry conditions, it yielded anywhere from 900-1,000 pounds, and in some cases up to 1,100 pounds. On our irrigated cotton, ST 5288B2F has yielded 1,500-1,600 pound range. So it’s done a good job for us on yield.” Jimmy White St. Joseph, Louisiana

Trait(s) GLT GLB2 LLB2

Herbicide Tolerance glyphosate Liberty® √ √ √ √ √

Insect 2-gene Bt TwinLink® Bollgard II® Bollgard II

As the first-ever cotton with full tolerance to both glyphosate and Liberty herbicides, GlyTol® LibertyLink® stacked technology gives growers a competitive edge to choose the herbicide and herbicide-tolerant trait system that will help them to optimize weed management on their farms. Also available with Bollgard II.

TwinLink™ † technology offers two-gene Bt protection against worm pests plus LibertyLink technology that gives full tolerance to Liberty herbicide. TwinLink will be stacked with GlyTol to provide double-herbicide tolerance to Liberty and glyphosate for effective crop and resistance management. Cotton stacked with TwinLink, GlyTol and LibertyLink will be a powerful weed and insect management tool for growers. It is anticipated that the first cotton varieties with TwinLink technology will be available in both FiberMax® and Stoneville® brands in the United States beginning in 2014, pending international import approvals.
