Farmers who have experienced Enlist™ herbicides are seeing that – in addition to their other attributes – Enlist One® and Enlist Duo® herbicides control their toughest weeds.
“Enlist worked well again,” says Ben Hortenstine, an Illinois farmer who has used the Enlist™ weed control system for three years now. “I like Enlist Duo because I don’t have to worry about tank mixing. It’s convenient. The 2,4-D choline takes care of the broadleaf weeds, and the glyphosate takes care of grasses. It’s been working for us.”
Jack Kent of Arkansas has experience with both Enlist cotton and Enlist E3 soybeans. Weeds, particularly Palmer amaranth, present challenges in trying to achieve consistently high yield.
“Enlist herbicides are going to allow us to control our worst weed,” Kent says. “So far, the Enlist system has absolutely been bulletproof. It has done everything it’s supposed to do. I can’t say enough good things about that product. It’s the best herbicide that I have ever seen in my life.”
Indiana farmer Luke Liechty also has been impressed with Enlist Duo® herbicide.
“The control Enlist Duo provided was phenomenal,” Liechty says. Within a day of application, weeds were starting to curl. Within two weeks, they had wilted beyond recovery. “The biggest value for the Enlist program on our farm is confidence. It’s confidence knowing that I can go out there and control weeds that are difficult to control right now.”
Liechty says flexibility is another important benefit.
“I think a lot of American farmers love to have options, and when you utilize the Enlist program, you have options to control your weeds,” he says. “You’re not just relying on one mode of action. If you start with a good preemergence herbicide and follow with a postemergence application of Enlist Duo herbicide, you can really have phenomenal control of hard-to-control weeds.”
