Think before you Bin Run

Verification Required
Most soybeans are still covered by a variety patent, and you will not be able to save and plant the seed from those varieties without a license giving you that added right. Check with your seed supplier before saving.

Higher Seeding Rate
Higher seeding rates may be required for bin-run compared to new branded seed.

Yield Loss
Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield® soybean seed outyielded bin-run Roundup Ready® soybeans by 6.1 bu/A.1

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