Enlist™ Stewardship

Soybean crop close up

Weed control - the program approach

Responsible use and stewardship of the Enlist™ corn, Enlist E3™ soybeans, and Enlist™ herbicides are essential to ensuring that these tools are effective and perform for years to come on your farm.

 

Controlling weeds with a program approach will help ensure good agronomics, optimum yields and a sustainable system.

A program approach means using pre-emergence residual herbicides with different modes of action followed by Enlist™ herbicides post-emergence. Benefits of a program approach include:

  • Reduced early season competition from annual grass and broadleaf weeds
  • Multi-modes of action for resistance management
  • Timely post-emergent applications for optimum weed control and reduced weed competition

 

 

 


 

Soybeans

The recommended weed control program for Enlist E3™ soybeans includes applying pre-emergence herbicides with different modes of action followed by Enlist Duo™ or Enlist 1™ herbicides post-emergence.

If a second post application of an Enlist herbicide is needed, it must be made at least 12 days after the first application, per the product label. Glufosinate, a group 10 herbicide, provides an additional mode of action that can be utilized in a program approach. 

 

Corn

The recommended weed control program for Enlist™ corn is a pre-emergence herbicide product containing at least two non-Group 4/Group 9 modes of action, followed by a post-emergence application of Enlist Duo™ herbicide.

If a second post application of Enlist Duo™ herbicide is needed, it must be made at least 12 days after the first application, per the product label.
