Dow AgroSciences Completes First Sale of Enlist Duo Herbicide in the U.S.Thu, 21 May 2015 16:17:17 CDT
Dow AgroSciences has recorded the first U.S. sale of Enlist Duo herbicide with Colex-D Technology. This marks the first commercial activity for the Enlist Weed Control System in the United States - putting advanced herbicide and trait technology in growers’ hands.
Adam Schwering farms with his family in Indiana and is among growers across the country who have sought new options to control glyphosate-resistant weeds.
With Enlist Duo - growers get the only herbicide to combine the proven performance of glyphosate plus a new 2,4-D choline.
John Chase - portfolio marketing leader for Dow AgroSciences - highlights the importance of Thursday’s announcement.
In addition to weed control - Enlist Duo with Colex-D Technology offers ultra-low volatility, minimized potential for physical drift, low odor and improved handling characteristics.
Corn growers located in top corn-producing states from Ohio to Kansas are part of the stewarded introduction of Enlist corn - which includes a thorough set of stewardship protocols and requirements. Enlist corn will be managed throughout the season and at harvest as import approvals continue to be obtained.
In soybeans - growers across the Midwest and South will experience the Enlist system as production growers under Dow AgroSciences’ Field Forward program. This program provides growers an opportunity to utilize the company’s newest technologies before they are commercially available.
Each grower is working closely with Dow AgroSciences representatives to manage all aspects of the Enlist Weed Control System.
