I spoke with our weed management team and came up with answers to your questions:
1. Genuity Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans had a greater than 5 bu/acre average over LibertyLink soybeans based on third party data in the 2011 University Trials summarized across all locations, maturity groups and institutions.
2. Liberty does have difficulty in controlling a number of grass weeds. Using Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans will allow you to control grasses with Roundup, and add in Flexstar for glyphosate-resistant broadleaf weeds.
3. Liberty will only control small weeds, usually less than 4 inches tall, whether they are glyphosate-resistant or not. Trying to control larger weeds than labeled can caused reduced control and increase the risk of resistance to Liberty.
