It's time for a new way


The spread of weeds poses a growing threat to the
glyphosate-tolerant system. The Enlist™ Weed Control System
will give you a powerful new tool – delivering the
exceptional performance you need as you look ahead.
So you can keep farming the way you prefer.

Next-generation technology for farming

Innovation drives productivity. That's never been more true than right now.

 

Glyphosate-tolerant technology raised yield potential to a whole new level, one the past generation of growers may have found unthinkable.

 

And the rise of tough weeds now puts that system at risk.

 

The Enlist™ Weed Control System will offer a new way to keep increasing productivity — delivering exceptional performance by building on today's glyphosate-tolerant system.


"The quality of life that I have as a producer today is so much
better than the quality of life that my dad or my grandfather had. I
hope the next generation enjoys continued improvement in their
quality of life. And the technology we have is a key part of that."

Pat Duncanson, Mapleton, Minn.

performance by building on today's glyphosate-tolerant technology.

  • A new tool to carry farming forward

    The spread of weeds poses tough questions for farmers who depend on the glyphosate-tolerant system.

     

    Malcolm Haigwood of Newport, Ark., sees growers of every generation struggle for answers. "Farmers my dad's age just want to put on more glyphosate, but I see them losing their fields. Guys my son's age have only farmed with the glyphosate-tolerant system. He's asked me, 'Dad, what do we do?'"

     

    The Enlist™ Weed Control System will offer a new tool to carry farming forward.

     

    Enlist will deliver exceptional performance by advancing glyphosate-tolerant technology – enabling broad-spectrum control against tough weeds.

The future of farming begins here


Technology has raised productivity to unprecedented levels.
But it will take new ideas to fulfill the future needs of farming.

The Enlist™ Weed Control System represents
Dow AgroSciences' commitment to build on
today's herbicide tolerant technology by introducing
innovations that work for tomorrow.
  • How do weeds challenge you?

    Glyphosate-tolerant technology revolutionized modern farming. Matt Schafer of LaCrosse, Ind., says that's undeniable. "It's made weed control easy," he says.

     

    But the continuing spread of weeds is putting his confidence to the test.

     

    "Over the years, we've seen weeds adapt to different chemistries," he says. "It looks like we're back dealing with old foes, like lambsquarters, that are becoming tough again."

     

    When something just works, it frees you up to focus on other areas of your farm. That's been true across the board for growers using glyphosate-tolerant technology.

"When we see an increase in weed pressure, it can lead
to an increase in the number of spray trips in the field.
The more times you're out in the field, the more compaction
issues you're going to see. That can affect crop yield, both
now and in the future."

Matt Schafer, LaCrosse, Ind.
  • Calculate the true cost of weeds

    In a 2010 survey, 3 out of 5 growers reported an increase in hard-to-control weeds. And nearly half (45%) noted a rise in weeds resistant to glyphosate.1

     

    Left uncontrolled, weeds rob crops of vital nutrients. The potential yield loss can add up fast — especially because weeds don't show visible crop damage like insects or disease.

     

    Let's put that into real terms. Research from Iowa State University shows that 6-inch weeds in the field at the time of application can reduce yields by up to 9%. In 200 bu./A corn, that translates to a 18 bu./A yield loss.

     

    The Enlist™ Weed Control System will deliver exceptional control to keep weeds from impacting your bottom line. Join the conversation to talk about your experience.

Glyphosate-tolerant technology works as well as ever.
Doesn't it? Not exactly. Half of all growers have seen their
operational costs increase to continue using
glyphosate-tolerant technology.



What are weeds costing you?

"We're trying to protect glyphosate-tolerant technology.
I hope that we're allowed as agriculture producers to use
tools like this to the best abilities to feed a growing
food demand in the world."

Pat Duncanson, Mapleton, Minn.

"I'm not an expert. But as I see it, we are going to get more and more weeds that become resistant. Especially the people that are using glyphosate-tolerant corn and using glyphosate for the weeds in their corn and then again the next year with soybeans."

Doug Doolittle, Story City, Iowa



What weeds are you seeing? JOIN THE CONVERSATION.


"I don't want to buy a cultivator. You know, if you want to have agriculture take a step backwards, you go back to mechanical control of weeds. Whatever we can do to stall the amount of resistant weeds, we should start doing that now."

Use the tools you have

In the fight against hard-to-control and resistant weeds, you need all the help you can get. Multiple modes of action can give you the upper hand.

 

SureStart® and Sonic® foundation herbicides from Dow AgroSciences are two proven tools that fit the way you farm. They offer additional modes of action against tough weeds - delivering consistent, broad-spectrum control.

 

Learn more about how SureStart and Sonic can improve your weed management program.

Only a little more than a decade ago, there wasn't
a single documented case of glyphosate resistance
anywhere in the Corn Belt.


Today, that's changed. Researchers have confirmed resistance
in weeds such as marestail, ragweed and waterhemp.
Multiple modes of action offer a proven answer. Learn
