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 is to bring the benefits of Enlist E3 soybeans to growers in their preferred brands,” said Al Carlson, Licensing and Distribution Leader at Corteva Agriscience. “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 yields.”
Corteva projects 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 have collaborated with Corteva to offer the Enlist E3 soybean trait. 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.
Access to exceptional weed control
With the introduction of the Enlist E3 soybean trait into seed company lineups from North Dakota to Texas and Colorado to the Carolinas, farmers gain an effective weed control technology option in soybeans. Farmers who plant Enlist E3 soybeans can take advantage of Enlist™ herbicides to help manage tough and resistant weeds. Used in a program approach, Enlist herbicides 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.
Spreading the word, spreading the solution
Making this technology broadly available through many preferred seed organizations will give soybean farmers the opportunity to use multiple modes of action to help control tough and resistant weeds.
