Soybean Update – Liberty Link & Late Planting
You must have a Liberty license agreement to buy and plant LIBERTY LINK Soybeans, the deadline is soon. Please apply or have your growers apply if you want to get the rebates. Click here to see offer.
Dealers do not need an invitation code to apply for a grower trait license; however, they would need the grower present to use the AgCelerate method because of the questions that are asked to verify the identity of the grower. The following are steps to obtain a grower trait license. There are two options available.
1. Go to the LinkUp web site using this link: http://www.linkup.bayercropscience.us
2. In the Grower Trait License center box in the lower right hand side of the page click on APPLY FOR A GROWER TRAIT LICENSE AGREEMENT
3. From here there are two options:
A. AgCelerate (new and preferred option including an electronic signature)
B. Bayer GTL (traditional option, requires a document to be faxed)
In order to search to see if a Grower has a license a Dealer would need a username and password. Usernames and passwords (seed dealers) to search for licensed growers can be obtained from Jamie MacDonald (firstname.lastname@example.org) whom I have copied on this email.
Hope this helps, let me know if you have questions.
Late Planting. If you are palning to plant after June 30 please order your beans now and ask your dealer to advise your seedsman to place these late planted beans in cool storage. This will maximize your chance of getting high germing soybeans for your late planting needs. There are several group 5, 6, and 7 group beans that have yielded very well planted late. Look under Resources for details on Ultra Late planting.
Always follow label directions and wash all empties completely.
