Midwest | Experiencing Enlist | Enlist™ weed control system

Midwest

Enlist E3® soybeans are taking over the Midwest. Learn how farmers from Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska are successfully using the Enlist® system.  

Tom Connors – Illinois

Tom Connors

Tom is a steward of the land. He works diligently to keep his fields as weed-free as possible, and that’s why he chose the Enlist® weed control system.

Nick Deimeke – Missouri

Nick Deimeke

Alongside his father and brother, Nick farms corn, soybeans and winter wheat in northeastern Missouri. The Deimeke team also runs a custom application business in which nearly all customers use the Enlist® weed control system. Deimeke says the switch to Enlist herbicides provided more flexibility with spraying at planting and more options to combat postemergence weed pressures. 

Kent Dunn – Kansas

Sprayer

Kent is a southwestern Kansas farmer, producing cotton, corn, milo, wheat, triticale and alfalfa – even the occasional field of sunflowers. Half the land is irrigated and the other half is dryland production. He’s growing PhytoGen® cottonseed with the Enlist® trait. Find out why.

Tom Lahey – Kansas

Sprayer

Tom is a Kansas farmer producing corn, wheat, milo and now cotton. His farm is also home to a small cow-calf operation. In 2000, he succeeded in pioneering cotton production in the area, soon leading efforts to build a local co-op gin. He’s been planting Enlist® cotton varieties since 2017.

Grant Strom – Illinois

Grant Strom

Grant is the third generation working full time on his family farm and growing corn and soybeans. The Strom farm includes a mix of every soil type and terrain from flat black to clay to slopes. Waterhemp has become a major problem in their area. They use the Enlist® system as a tool for rotating herbicide modes of action into their weed control program.

Billy Baudler – Iowa

Billy Baudler

Billy farms with his father, Steve, near Fontanelle in central Iowa. They grow corn, soybeans, hay and cereal rye. They’re using cover crops – mostly cereal rye or winter wheat. Baudler plants Enlist E3® soybeans and uses Enlist Duo® herbicide on the crop.

Lynnet Talcott – Nebraska

Lynnet Talcott

Lynnet farms near Bennet, Nebraska, with her husband, Norris; her son, Garret; and her daughter-in-law, Morgan. In addition to a corn-soybean rotation, the Talcotts grow alfalfa for their cow/calf operation. They were ready to try the Enlist® weed control system to see the performance of Enlist Duo® herbicide on Enlist E3® soybeans and haven’t looked back.

Luke Liechty – Indiana

Luke Liechty

Luke’s family farm raises corn, soybeans and a little alfalfa. They use no-till or minimum tillage practices and incorporate cover crops on their farm. Weed control is very important. The weeds are getting tougher to control, and they’re seeing resistance issues, which is why they turned to the Enlist® weed control system for their farm.

Mike and Jeremy Patterson – Iowa

Mike and Jeremy Patterson

Mike and Jeremy Patterson are continuing their family’s farm as the second and third generations. They raise production soybeans and corn in north-central Iowa. With weeds becoming harder to control, they decided to try the Enlist® system.

Kevin Miller – Ohio

Kevin Miller

Kevin Miller farms in northwest Ohio. The family farm grows corn, soybeans, wheat and a little hay in addition to raising club calves. He uses conservation practices, including no-till soybeans, strip-till corn and cover crops. He says he likes the ability to apply multiple modes of action postemergence, including glufosinate on his acres of Enlist E3® soybeans.
