Roundup Ready soybean trait patent nears expiration in 2014

By Jennifer M. Latzke

In 1996, soybean farmers saw the first commercial release of a new soybean variety that would change agriculture. Using the science of biotechnology, researchers had isolated a trait in the genetic code of the soybean plant that offered resistance to the chemical herbicide glyphosate.

Those first Roundup Ready soybeans ushered in a whole new era in production agriculture. For the first time soybean farmers had in-seed herbicide tolerance to Roundup, which had been used as a pre-plant burndown treatment on soybean acres since the 1970s. And, through the first decade of the 21st century, farmers have seen a boom in Roundup Ready crops, from soybeans, to canola, cotton, sugar beets, corn and more.
