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, Herculex and PowerCore 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. Enlist corn contains genes that confer tolerance to 2,4-D and –fop herbicides. 2,4-D and -fop herbicides will damage or kill crops that are not tolerant to 2,4-D or -fops.
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 limitation on the use of these products are provided in the Dow AgroSciences Technology Use Agreement and Enlist™ Soybean Product Use Guide.

SEED USE AGREEMENT
M.S. Technologies, L.L.C. (“MS TECH”) and its suppliers are engaged in the business of developing and supplying for sale various varieties of soybeans. MS TECH and its suppliers have a substantial investment in the development and production of this seed, and in the use of the subsequent production of LibertyLink® GT27™Soybeans (the“Seed”). MS TECH and its suppliers have expended substantial effort in developing a market for seed. MS TECH and its suppliers have existing contractual relationships with other distributors for the sale of seed and expectations of additional contracts for sale of seed from such distributors in the future. The purchase of the Seed includes a limited license under the U.S. patents on the package and seed tag to produce a single crop.In consideration of the foregoing, and in consideration of the Seed that User has been sold or otherwise granted the right to use, User hereby acknowledges and agrees that the production from the Seed will be used only for feed or processing, and will not be used or sold for seed, breeding, or any variety improvement purposes unless User has a valid agreement with MS TECH for such purposes. User acknowledges MS TECH and its suppliers have a proprietary interest in the use of subsequent production from the Seed, and agrees it would be a violation of this
Agreement to allow the subsequent production of the Seed to be used to create any seed variety or seed product from said production. Any export of this Seed or its progeny from the country of purchase is strictly prohibited, except that forage or grain may be exported solely for use in feeding or processing. User agrees and acknowledges that any use of the Seed, which is forbidden by this Agreement will constitute a misappropriation of the personal property of MS TECH and its supplier, and will therefore result in a breach
of this Agreement. User agrees that MS TECH and/or its supplier may bring an action to recover damages as a result of the breach of this Agreement, along with reasonable attorney fees and costs associated with any action commenced in regard thereto. User further agrees that the exclusive venue for any dispute arising under this Agreement or in connection to any breach thereof shall be in the federal or state courts for Dallas County, Iowa, and hereby irrevocably consents to the personal jurisdiction of such courts. This Agreement shall be governed under the laws of the State of Iowa.
User agrees and acknowledges that any use of the Seed, which is forbidden by this Agreement, will damage MS TECH and its supplier’s legitimate expectation of future sales of seed, and any use of Seed in violation of this Agreement will constitute an attempt to intentionally injure or destroy MS TECH and its supplier’s prospective business expectations in future sales of seed. User agrees and acknowledges that any use of Seed from MS TECH in violation of this Agreement will cause substantial damage to MS TECH and/or its supplier, and that if subsequent production of the Seed is used to create a seed variety or seed product, substantial damage to MS TECH and or its supplier for all seed varieties or seed products thereby created will be caused. This Agreement shall not limit any other rights, legal or equitable, that MS TECH and its supplier have but shall be accumulative. User agrees to only use agricultural herbicide products that contain herbicides to which the Seed provides tolerance, and that are expressly labeled for use in conjunction with the Seed and have received government approvals as specified in a product use guide and/or product use label in the production of the Seed. Prior to applying isoxaflutole to plants grown from this seed confirm that such isoxaflutole application complies with all local, state and federal rules and obligations. MS TECH shall not be responsible for any claims, losses or damages related to User and/or any User’s inability to sell the Seed indicated or marked as LibertyLink® GT27™Soybeans.
NOTICE OF REQUIRED ARBITRATION
