Combining Enlist™ traits with elite genetics for high-yielding products

Dow AgroSciences is committed to bringing elite hybrids and varieties to the marketplace. Our robust pipeline of technology, including the Enlist Weed Control System, will continue to be held to the highest standards. Enlist will be part of our trait introgression standard platform.

The large pool of germplasm that has been used to develop elite Enlist hybrids and varieties allows us to be very selective, which means we have superior lines, wide adaptation and competitive performance.

With Dow AgroSciences’ broad genetic base providing many options, we look closely for yield and agronomic fit for a given geography. In soybeans, disease resistance is a key factor. We screen for a range of diseases based on geography, such as sudden death syndrome (SDS), phytophthora, white mold and brown stem rot. Varieties are tailored to farmers based on their geography and needs.

As always, yield performance remains our primary focus for all new products. Any time a new trait is introduced, there is concern with potential yield drag. We have many years of yield data with no yield penalty associated with Enlist traits.

In our corn breeding program, we run numerous yield trials with multiple testers and genetic selections across the Corn Belt. The parental inbreds also are evaluated in separate trials to ensure high-quality hybrid production. To maintain quality, we never increase a line in parent seed until we have completed all the quality and yield testing.

Through our years of research with the Enlist trait, we have not slowed down. We are ready to bring the best product to you and your customers.
