Enlist™ Ahead app offers growers and applicators vital herbicide application information from a single source. The app, designed for use with the Enlist Weed Control System, is a precision agriculture tool for maximizing weed control performance, managing weed resistance and making responsible applications of Enlist Duo™ herbicide with Colex-D™ Technology. Regulatory approvals are pending for the Enlist system. 

"With the Enlist Ahead app, growers and applicators will be able to carry important application data with them as they move from field to field," says Damon Palmer, commercial leader, Enlist Weed Control System, Dow AgroSciences. "Two key features  of the app — the application planner and the mode of action calculator — will help them make informed decisions for their weed control program and herbicide applications, maximizing their herbicide investment and getting the most from the Enlist technology into the future." 
 
The Enlist™ Ahead app is part of the Enlist Ahead management resource, which provides technology advancements, management recommendations, training and education. Parts of the app are powered by CDMS, a leading provider of software services and agricultural databases. 
 
Planning for a responsible application of Enlist Duo herbicide
 
The app’s herbicide application planner combines real-time, localized weather data, capabilities to map crop fields and trait technologies, and other important considerations for growers and applicators to review before making a responsible herbicide application. 
 
App users can record the application rate, boom height and nozzle selection. Pulling in local environmental conditions from the closest National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) weather station, the Enlist Ahead app will show wind speed and wind direction. The local weather will continue to update during the application, allowing applicators to make any necessary adjustments based on weather changes. 
 
After the herbicide application details are entered, the app compiles the information and informs the applicator if conditions meet label requirements and best management practices from Dow AgroSciences.
