The Enlist E3 trait stack confers tolerance to 2,4-D, glyphosate , and glufosinate. It is an innovative molecular stack that brings all three herbicide tolerances via a single transgenic event, presenting a unique advantage for customers of Dow AgroSciences, MS Technologies, and future licensees. Because the Enlist E3 trait is a single genetic event, breeding efforts can quickly advance superior performing soybean seeds for farmers.
“Science continues to provide the base for solutions needed by farmers in a world of scarce resources and ever-growing population,” says Daniel R. Kittle, Ph.D. and vice president, Research and Development at Dow AgroSciences. “Enlist E3 soybeans illustrate how novel technology can be used to accelerate innovation and address significant weed challenges while providing the performance farmers must have to remain competitive.”
“Driving the agricultural industry forward starts with elite germplasm and great traits,” said Harry Stine, manager, MS Technologies. “Enlist E3 is breakthrough technology that will help farmers optimize their yields and meet growing demand across the globe.”
Enlist is a next-generation system that combines innovative traits, herbicides, and stewardship to deliver weed control that farmers need now while sustaining beneficial farming practices. Enlist corn and Enlist soybean traits were approved in October 2012 in Canada for food, feed, and environmental release and Enlist Duo herbicide was approved in Canada in May 2013.
