Corteva Agriscience is working with more than 100 independent seed companies to broadly license the Enlist E3™ soybean trait. These efforts will enable wide availability for 2020 and beyond, making Enlist E3 soybeans available to growers who need advanced weed control solutions.
The goal of bringing the benefits of Enlist E3 soybeans to growers in their preferred brands was established years ago, as early commercialization plans were drafted for the Enlist system. Corteva Agriscience is proud to work with seed companies to make Enlist E3 soybeans available to their customers. Enlist E3 soybeans fit across a wide range of geographies and maturities, helping growers everywhere achieve excellent weed control and strong yield.
We project that Enlist E3 soybeans will be planted on at least 10% of U.S. soybean acres in 2020. Farmers can visit Enlist.com for a list of seed companies who are offering Enlist E3 soybeans for the 2020 season. Enlist E3 soybeans also are available from Corteva Agriscience™ brands: Pioneer®, Mycogen Seeds, AgVenture, Dairyland Seed, Hoegemeyer Hybrids, NuTech Seed®, Seed Consultants and Terral Seed.
Offering exceptional weed control
The introduction of the Enlist E3 soybean trait into these seed company lineups will give an effective weed control option to soybean farmers from North Dakota to Texas and from Colorado to the Carolinas. Farmers who plant Enlist E3 soybeans can take advantage of Enlist™ herbicides to help manage tough and resistant weeds. When used in a program approach that includes a burndown application and preemergent applications of effective residual herbicides, Enlist herbicides will help growers keep weeds under control throughout the growing season.
Starting clean and applying preemergence residual herbicides sets the stage for applications of Enlist herbicides postemergence on Enlist E3 soybeans. Enlist Duo® herbicide is a combination of 2,4-D choline and glyphosate to control broadleaf weeds and grasses. Enlist One® herbicide is a straight-goods 2,4-D choline that offers additional tank-mix flexibility with other products such as glufosinate.
With the ability to use 2,4-D choline, glyphosate and glufosinate postemergence, soybean farmers can employ multiple modes of action against their most difficult weeds. Using multiple modes of action also retards the development of herbicide-resistant weeds.
Expanding flexible options
Making the Enlist weed control system broadly available through many seed organizations will give soybean farmers the opportunity to control tough and resistant weeds by using multiple herbicide modes of action.
