The article reports that Monsanto Co. has announced reduction in the price of its Roundup Original MAX herbicide and the introduction of a customer rewards program by Monsanto Co. The company also unveiled an enhanced Roundup Rewards program for growers that utilize Roundup WeatherMAX or Roundup Original MAX as part of their Roundup Ready Soybean System. The new lower list price for Roundup Original MAX coupled with the enhanced elements of the Roundup Rewards program is expected to provide an attractive alternative to growers who have been using generic glyphosate products but value the risk-sharing, reliability and consistency of Roundup agricultural herbicides.
