I farm with my father, Bruce. It’s a fourth-generation farm. We grow corn, soybeans and some spring wheat. About two-thirds of our acres are a corn-soybean rotation, and the other third is a wheat-soybean rotation. I want to try Enlist Duo® herbicide to see how it will fit into our herbicide rotation.

We haven’t seen kochia in the field. That’s always our biggest concern. We came back after our Enlist Duo application and followed up with glufosinate. The combination was very effective. Definitely having three herbicide tolerances with the Enlist soybeans helped. We’ll use Enlist again due to the weed control.

Enlist Duo® herbicide did an excellent job controlling the weeds. That’s important to any farmer. No one likes to see weeds in their fields.
First, weeds rob yield, and second, it’s nice to look across your field and not see any weeds out there. Lastly, and maybe most important, landlords don’t want to see weeds. Clean fields give them peace of mind that you’re being good stewards of their land, as well.

We applied Enlist Duo on Enlist soybeans on June 28. It had been too windy to get into the field before then. It’s doing the trick. A week later, we’re seeing brown weeds. The problem now is moisture. We need a rain. The forecast is for hot and humid, but there’s not much chance of rain for the next 10 days.

One nice effect of Enlist Duo is that you can see instant reaction to the chemistry by the weeds. Just the day after application and we see curling of the weeds. When using straight glyphosate alone, you don’t see that. It gives you peace of mind that the chemistry is working right away.

The cool weather has delayed our crop maturity. Our corn is a couple of weeks behind last year, and soybeans are at least 10 days behind. We finished planting our Enlist soybeans on Monday and got the last of our other soybeans in the ground Tuesday.

The weather has been pretty good. We just started planting soybeans today. I hope to start planting Enlist soybeans later this week. We finished planting corn yesterday. We started on corn about a week and a half ago and only had one rain that drove us out of the field for part of a day.

I hope to start planting Enlist soybeans in a couple of weeks if conditions allow. I want to try Enlist soybeans because I like the technology, which gives us three modes of action to control weeds postemergence. Ideally, I’d like to use Enlist Duo herbicide on soybeans to be able to rotate modes of action. I think it’s a great idea.
