There are few constants in farming, but one thing farmers can count on is having to make multiple input decisions each year. In recent years, those decisions have often been made tougher by continued challenges facing the industry.
One difficult decision for many farmers is choosing the right trait system that fits your fields and gives you weed control flexibility. If you’re on the fence, here are three key weed control areas to consider before making next year’s seed decisions:
1. The right chemistry
The battle with resistant weeds like waterhemp or Palmer amaranth is a difficult one. Choosing the right trait platform gives you access to the best herbicide solutions to manage those weeds.
Enlist One® and Enlist Duo® herbicides provide superior control of resistant and hard-to-control broadleaf weeds to maximize yield by eliminating key yield-robbing weeds from the field. Both herbicides are made with proprietary Colex-D® technology, which provides near-zero volatility and minimized potential for physical drift.
2. The right program approach
The Enlist® trait enables the use of Enlist herbicides, glyphosate and glufosinate, or Liberty® herbicide over the top of soybeans, cotton and corn for broad-spectrum weed control. There are more than 1,600 qualified products — including herbicides, fungicides, insecticides and adjuvants — that can be tank-mixed with Enlist One herbicide. This gives you the flexibility you need to manage tough weeds.
You can utilize Enlist herbicides as the cornerstone of your herbicide program to overcome your most difficult weed challenges. You also can incorporate the industry-leading residual herbicide portfolio from Corteva Agriscience for season-long control.
3. The right application
With the Enlist® weed control system, you can put away your calendar and spray according to your schedule. Through R1 on Enlist E3® soybeans, first white bloom on Enlist cotton and V8 or 30 inches tall on Enlist corn, you can spray with no calendar cutoff dates for this season or the upcoming seasons.
The Environmental Protection Agency has completed the registration amendment process for Enlist One and Enlist Duo herbicides — granting a seven-year registration through Jan. 11, 2029.
In the video segment below, Andy Carriger, Enlist field specialist, discusses more on the importance of selecting the right trait system that gives you more flexibility to control weeds.
