Corteva Agriscience announced the availability of the Pioneer® brand A-Series Enlist E3® soybeans in Canada. These varieties, exclusive to Pioneer, combine the world-class genetics of Pioneer® brand A-Series soybeans, the company’s highest-yielding varieties ever, with Enlist® technology, one of the most advanced trait technologies in soybeans.
Available in limited volumes beginning September 1, Pioneer will offer 12 A-Series Enlist E3 soybean varieties across a range of maturities that meet Eastern Canada’s soybean needs, with more varieties being introduced in 2023.
″We’re excited to offer Eastern Canadian soybean farmers A-Series Enlist E3 soybeans which are expected to bring a significant boost to yield performance potential with the Enlist E3 soybean trait,″ said Jeff Loessin, Seeds Leader, Corteva Agriscience Canada. ″That yield potential is then protected by exceptional agronomic characteristics and defensive traits to fight diseases and pests.″
In extensive testing and trials across geographies in 2021, A-Series Enlist E3 soybeans delivered a bushels-per-acre advantage that equates to $32.00/A in potential additional farm income against all competitors.1 Loessin anticipates that advantage will only continue to increase
A-Series Enlist E3 soybeans bring a new generation of yield potential to the Enlist E3 soybean market. Along with this yield performance, farmers get improved agronomic traits including Soybean Cyst Nematode (SCN) resistance, white mold, Phytophthora and Sudden Death Syndrome.
Supercharging the Enlist® Weed Control System
Farmers in the United States are already familiar with the advantages of the Enlist® weed control system. With an adoption rate on U.S. soybean acres of greater than 45% in 2022, the Enlist weed control system is the industry’s fastest-growing soybean herbicide system, a trend Pioneer expects to continue with the introduction of high-performing A-series Enlist E3 soybeans.
The Enlist weed control system provides a new standard for weed control that delivers on-target applications with enhanced flexibility. The Enlist weed control system will fit a farmer’s herbicide program while providing control of hard to control and resistant weeds like Waterhemp, Canada Fleabane, Field horsetail and many more. Enlist® herbicides feature near-zero volatility and reduced potential for physical drift, when applied according to label instructions, as well as a wide application window, no calendar cut-off dates or temperature restrictions.
