    Sooner or later even the food plotter will more than likely need to know these:
    LL- Liberty Link. Describes the trait that makes a crop tolerant to glufosinate herbicides.
    RR2X- Roundup Ready 2 Xtend. Describes the trait that makes a crop tolerant to both glyphosate and dicamba herbicides. The soybeans with this trait are starting to become referred to as simply Xtend beans by most.
