Farming has always been a part of my life. I grew up on a beef cattle farm and we had row crop ground as well. I have known all my life that farming is what I wanted to do. Today, I farm, manage a large row-crop operation and raise beef cattle. In our area, we are in need of new technology. We have seen resistance get progressively worse over the last several years. The Enlist™ system provides different modes of action for our farms. It is my hope that Enlist is going to be the superior option of all the new technologies coming forward.

I have recommended the Enlist system to other farmers. Those that came to the field this year have already been asking the rep to try it for themselves next year. They know it is the future in weed control. Soybeans are our staple crop in this area, making up a majority of our acres. And, there just aren’t a lot of options in soybeans. Bottom line is the Enlist system provides the weed control we need, which makes everyone
excited.

Without a program approach to weed control, you really don’t have control of your weeds to start with. I feel like Enlist falls right into our program approach. It provided excellent control, especially of pigweed which is our number one problem here. There were no escapes and our field was very clean.

A wide application window is a big deal.

You can’t control the weather. And, you never know what’s going to happen tomorrow that may cause you to miss an application. A wide application window is a big deal. It makes timing a smaller part of the equation and really helps.

Enlist™ soybeans provide strong crop tolerance

After the application of Enlist Duo® herbicide, we are not seeing any damage to the plant. I didn’t see the physical injury you see with some residual herbicides.

Enlist™ soybeans show strong emergence

Things are looking good in the Enlist™ soybean field. I’m happy with the stand and crop emergence.

Wet field conditions

Burndown on the field with Enlist™ soybeans

Overall, we’ve been experiencing wet conditions that have been delaying planting this spring. There have been days here and there fit for planting. Yesterday was a dry day, and we were able to plant the Enlist™ soybeans. Today, we followed up with our burndown application.
