What happens if Roundup Ready Sugarbeets Have to Be Replanted?
• If a grower replants with another seed company Roundup Ready variety – the seed company with the original seed refunds that tech fee, the alternative seed company supplying the Roundup Ready replant seed will then collect the tech fee. • Growers only pay the tech fee once per year. Can Growers Tank Mix Other Pesticides or Agrichemicals With Roundup? • Yes, if all components of the tank mix are labeled. • Monsanto does not recommend tank mixes. Tank mixes void the Monsanto warranty regarding weed control and crop injury. Must Growers Top or Rogue Bolting Sugarbeets From a Roundup Ready Sugarbeet Field? • Agreements with Monsanto state “bolting plants must be removed or topped before they produce pollen or seeds.” • American Crystal also recommends this as good stewardship of the technology. Contact your agriculturist for assistance in using this new technology to its best advantage. Avoid spray drift – never apply roundup in a wind inversion condition. Use drift control techniques to
