Use Liberty, Enlist to control broadleaf weeds

Liberty herbicide is Corteva’s recommended glufosinate with the Enlist weed control system

Corteva Agriscience and BASF are recommending the use of Liberty and Enlist One herbicides on Enlist E3 soybean and Enlist cotton acres to give growers control of broadleaf weeds including waterhemp, pigweed, kochia, marestail and ragweed species.

“The combination of Enlist One plus Liberty herbicide is lights out on tough pigweed and waterhemp,” says Shawna Hubbard, Trait Herbicide Product Manager, Corteva Agriscience. “Using both products postemergence will help farmers get the cleanest fields they’ve seen in years in areas infested with tough weeds. That’s why Liberty herbicide is now Corteva’s recommended glufosinate for use with the Enlist weed control system.”

Better control via multiple modes of action

Enlist E3 soybeans and Enlist cotton give farmers flexibility in their herbicide selection with tolerance to 2,4-D choline in Enlist herbicides, glufosinate in Liberty herbicide, and glyphosate. This allows farmers and applicators to employ multiple herbicide sites of action.

By using Enlist and Liberty herbicides on the same acre, farmers will obtain weed control while helping sustain the long-term efficacy of both herbicides. They give farmers options: Spray these two products at one time with a tank mix of Enlist One plus Liberty herbicide or in planned sequential passes of Liberty herbicide and Enlist Duo herbicide.

“Farmers need flexibility and options in their herbicide programs to control resistant weeds,” says Kate Greif, BASF Liberty Herbicide Product Manager. “Utilizing multiple, effective sites of action in a planned program delivers consistent performance this season, while increasing the long-term sustainability of these chemistries for future seasons. The collaboration between Corteva and BASF gives farmers deeper insights and improved recommendations to combat tough-to-control weeds through two effective postemergence herbicides in Enlist E3 soybean and Enlist cotton fields.”
