IMPORTANT IRM INFORMATION: RIB Complete® corn blend products do not require the planting of a structured refuge except in the Cotton-Growing Area where corn earworm is a significant pest. SmartStax® RIB Complete® corn blend is not allowed to be sold for planting in the Cotton-Growing Area. See the IRM/Grower Guide for additional information. Always read and follow IRM requirements.

DroughtGard® Hybrids with RIB Complete® corn blend the refuge seed may not always contain DroughtGard® Hybrids trait.

ALWAYS READ AND FOLLOW PESTICIDE LABEL DIRECTIONS. Roundup Ready technology contain genes that confer tolerance to glyphosate, an active ingredient in Roundup® brand agricultural herbicides. Agricultural herbicides containing glyphosate will kill crops that are not tolerant to glyphosate.

Performance may vary from location to location and from year to year, as local growing, soil and weather conditions may vary. Growers should evaluate data from multiple locations and years whenever possible and should consider the impacts of these conditions on the grower’s fields.

Soybean Piracy Statement

Seed containing a patented trait can only be used to plant a single commercial crop from which seed cannot be saved and replanted. Examples of seed containing a patented trait include but are not limited to Roundup Ready 2 Yield® soybeans and Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans. Additional information and limitations on the use of these products are provided in the Monsanto Technology Stewardship Agreement and the Monsanto Technology Use Guide. U.S. patents for Monsanto technologies can be found at the following webpage: http://www.monsantotechnology.com

ALWAYS READ AND FOLLOW DIRECTIONS FOR USE ON PESTICIDE LABELING. IT IS A VIOLATION OF

FEDERAL AND STATE LAW to use any pesticide product other than in accordance with its labeling. NOT ALL formulations of dicamba or glyphosate are approved for in-crop use with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans. ONLY USE FORMULATIONS THAT ARE SPECIFICALLY LABELED FOR SUCH USES AND APPROVED FOR SUCH USE IN THE STATE OF APPLICATION. Contact the U.S. EPA and your state pesticide regulatory agency with any questions about the approval status of dicamba herbicide products for in-crop use with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans.

Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans contains genes that confer tolerance to glyphosate and dicamba. Glyphosate will kill crops that are not tolerant to glyphosate. Dicamba will kill crops that are not tolerant to dicamba. Contact your seed brand dealer or refer to the Technology Use Guide for recommended weed control programs.

ALWAYS READ AND FOLLOW PESTICIDE LABEL DIRECTIONS. Roundup Ready® technology contains genes that confer tolerance to glyphosate, an active ingredient in Roundup® brand agricultural herbicides. Agricultural herbicides containing glyphosate will kill crops that are not tolerant to glyphosate.

Seeds containing the Enlist, Herculex and PowerCore traits are protected under numerous US patents. Seeds containing patented traits can only be used to plant a single commercial crop and cannot be saved or replanted. You acknowledge and agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of the following documents in effect at the time of planting of this seed: (i) the Technology Use Agreement and (ii) the Product Use Guides for all technologies in this seed, including the Herbicide Resistance Management (HRM), and Use requirements detailed therein www.corteva.us/Resources/trait-stewardship.html).

To plant Enlist seed, you must have a limited license from Dow AgroSciences LLC (or other appropriate

affiliates). In consideration of the foregoing, Dow AgroSciences grants to the Grower the limited license to use its technology to produce only a single commercial crop in the United States under the terms and conditions set forth in the Technology Use Agreement in effect at the time of planting of this seed.

Always read and follow herbicide label directions prior to use: Enlist™ products contain the Enlist trait

that provides crop safety for use of labeled over-the-top applications of glyphosate, glufosinate and 2,4-D herbicides featuring Colex-D® technology when applied according to label directions. Following burndown, the only 2,4-D containing herbicide products that may be used with Enlist™ crops are products that feature Colex-D technology and are expressly labeled for use on Enlist crops. 2,4-D products that do not contain Colex-D technology are not authorized for use in conjunction with Enlist products.

WARNING: Enlist products are tolerant of over-the top applications of glyphosate, glufosinate, and 2,4-D. Accidental application of incompatible herbicides to this variety could result in total crop loss. When using 2,4-D herbicides, grower agrees to only use 2,4-D products that contain Colex-D technology authorized for use in conjunction with Enlist products.

Enlist E3™ soybean seeds containing the Enlist™ trait can only be used to plant a single commercial crop. It is unlawful to save and replant Enlist E3™ soybeans. Additional information and limitations on the use of these products are provided in the Dow AgroSciences Technology Use Agreement and Enlist™ Soybean Product Use Guide.

THINK BEFORE YOU BIN-RUN

Verification Required The last patent on the original Roundup Ready® soybean trait expired a few years ago and U.S. farmers may legally plant saved seed from some varieties of soybean containing the Roundup Ready® soybean trait. However, it is important that you check with your seed supplier to determine if a specific Roundup Ready® soybean variety is covered by other intellectual property rights, and if so, the policy for saving seed of that variety.

Higher Seeding Rate A higher seeding rate may be required for binrun Roundup Ready® soybeans compared to new branded seed.

Yield Loss Roundup Ready 2 Yield® soybean varieties and Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybean varieties typically have a higher yield opportunity than Roundup Ready® soybean varieties*.

Cleanout Loss Loss of seed and/or shrink occurs during the seed cleaning and handling processes for bin-run seed.

Seed Treatment Costs Treating your seed will add costs—both the cost of the treatment and the application of that treatment.

Lost Income Every bushel of saved seed you plant is a bushel you’re not selling as commodity grain.

Increased Seed Management If you plan to save and bin-run Roundup Ready® soybeans for planting, you will have to manage your harvest operations and grain storage so that the seed isn’t co-mingled with other seed that’s covered by intellectual property rights.
