EPA Approves Enlist Duo Herbicide for Nine Additional States, Including Oklahoma

Thu, 02 Apr 2015 16:19:45 CDT

EPA Approves Enlist Duo Herbicide for Nine Additional States, Including Oklahoma The Environmental Protection Agency announced its approval of Enlist Duo herbicide for use in nine additional states, including Oklahoma and Kansas. A key component of the innovative Enlist Weed Control System, Enlist Duo with Colex-D Technology is the only herbicide to combine the proven performance of glyphosate with new 2,4-D choline for exceptional weed control in corn and soybeans.

The label for Enlist Duo now includes federal registration in many of the key corn- and soybean-producing states. The newest additions include Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Nebraska, North Dakota and Oklahoma. The originally approved states Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin were included on the federal label when the EPA registered Enlist Duo for use with Enlist corn and soybeans in October 2014. Dow AgroSciences will continue to work closely with state regulatory authorities to obtain local approvals. Regulatory approvals are pending for Enlist cotton.

Susanne Wasson, commercial leader for Dow AgroSciences' crop protection business, highlights the significance of the announcement.

"Today, there's more than 84 million acres of farmland that are infested with glyphosate-resistant weeds," Wasson said. "And, that number climbs every year, making this decision by the EPA very critical. Growers need access to this much-needed, effective weed control solution."

According to Wasson, recent feedback from growers from on-farm trials overwhelmingly rated the weed control with Enlist Duo higher than their current weed control system. In addition, growers were impressed by the lack of drift and volatility. The proprietary Colex-D Technology in Enlist Duo helps ensure the herbicide lands and stays on target with minimized potential for drift and volatility.

Josh Lloyd farms in Kansas one of the new states added to the federal label.

"Reduced off-target movement is important on our farm. I want a product that will stay exactly where we spray it," Lloyd said. "And, with this new formulation, Enlist Duo with Colex-D Technology gives me that peace of mind. And, I think it's a tool that will help many Kansas growers manage tough weeds."

Dow AgroSciences will launch Enlist Duo in conjunction with a stewarded introduction of Enlist corn and seed production of Enlist soybeans in 2015. The company continues to work with the EPA to further expand the list of states on the federal label.
