Enlist™ Seed Traits

Innovative traits in a system that works the way you need it

Maximize your yield potential by combining crop tolerance and exceptional broadleaf weed control.

Enlist traits enable control against the toughest weeds in soybeans, cotton and corn. With multiple herbicide tolerances, you have more weed control options in one complete, easy-to-use system.

You get tolerance to 2,4-D choline and glyphosate with all Enlist crops, as well as additional glufosinate tolerance in Enlist cotton and Enlist E3® soybeans and additional FOP herbicide tolerance in Enlist corn. Liberty® herbicide is the preferred glufosinate of the Enlist weed control system to give farmers better control and flexibility with weed management. Durango® DMA® herbicide is the preferred glyphosate tank-mix partner with Enlist One.

Responsible, effective and flexible to control tough and resistant weeds.

The Enlist trait enables you to use Enlist Duo® and Enlist One® herbicides over the top of soybeans, cotton and corn for broad-spectrum weed control. You can also apply Enlist herbicides pre-emergence and in burndown – with no plantback restriction for Enlist crops.

The 2,4-D tolerance in Enlist crops expands the postemergence application window in cotton and corn and provides improved weed control in the same wide application window you’re used to in soybeans.

New standard for weed control – unleash yield potential.

Enlist E3® soybeans offer the most advanced trait technology available in soybeans, providing a new standard for weed control and yield performance.

With Enlist E3 soybeans, the three herbicide tolerances —2,4-D choline, glyphosate and glufosinate — combine to deliver a complete system with more weed control options.

Using multiple herbicide sites of action in a program approach helps control weeds in the current growing season while limiting the ability for herbicide-resistant weeds to develop. Enlist E3 soybeans give farmers the flexibility to employ multiple herbicide sites of action.

The transgenic soybean event in Enlist E3® soybeans is jointly developed and owned by Dow AgroSciences LLC and MS Technologies LLC. Find seed organizations offering Enlist E3 soybean varieties for 2020 in their lineup. Learn more.


Enlist E3® trait in soybeans

Enlist Duo® herbicide was applied at a high rate to Enlist E3 soybeans and soybeans without the Enlist E3 trait. Enlist E3 soybeans showed no injury. Soybeans without the Enlist® trait showed significant injury.

Control weeds your way — with more options.

Take control of weeds like never before in your cotton fields. With multiple herbicide tolerances, you have the flexibility to control weeds your way for improved weed resistance management.

Enlist® cotton provides exceptional crop tolerance to 2,4-D choline found in Enlist Duo® and Enlist One® herbicides, plus robust tolerance to glufosinate herbicides. Liberty® herbicide is the preferred glufosinate of the Enlist weed control system.

Available in proven, consistent, high yielding PhytoGen® cottonseed, the Enlist cotton trait is stacked with Genuity® Roundup Ready® Flex and WideStrike® 3 Insect Protection.

Enlist trait in cotton

Enlist Duo herbicide was applied to Enlist cotton and cotton without the Enlist trait. Enlist cotton showed no injury. Cotton without the Enlist trait showed significant injury.

Exceptional weed control — make every inch of ground yours.

Enlist® corn gives you the most advanced herbicide-tolerant technology on the market — enabling exceptional weed control, ease of use and the ability to apply FOP herbicides postemergence.

With tolerance to 2,4-D choline, glyphosate and FOP herbicides such as Assure® II, the Enlist corn trait provides more weed control options and greater flexibility.

Assure® II herbicide is labeled for postemergence grass control in corn with the Enlist trait. It provides farmers another solution to control persistent, unwanted grasses, such as fall panicum, field sandbur, giant foxtail, Johnsongrass, shattercane and quackgrass. Assure II also provides control of volunteer corn without the Enlist trait in Enlist corn fields.

The Enlist corn trait is stacked with SmartStax® trait technology, which provides above- and below- ground insect protection, and PowerCore® trait technology, which provides above-ground insect protection.

Enlist trait in corn

Field trials compared crop tolerance in Enlist corn and corn without the Enlist trait following application of Enlist Duo® herbicide. Corn without the Enlist trait shows visible injury. Enlist corn showed strong brace roots and no leaning or brittleness.
