Ag professionals can see Enlist Weed Control System
“The advantages of the Colex-D technology and the low volatility, the lack of drift is huge for us with our multiple crops up our way,” said J.J. Metz, crop consultant from Michigan. “I like the concept that we can go in there; we can make the spray application, put it where it needs to go and have very minimal concerns in regards to off-target [movement].”
Side-by-side plots also will demonstrate the tolerance of Enlist crops to Enlist Duo herbicide. Additional herbicide tolerances include tolerance of Enlist corn to the FOP class of herbicides as well as the tolerance of Enlist soybeans, Enlist E3 soybeans and Enlist cotton to glufosinate herbicides.
Midwest growers will have the opportunity to see Enlist corn, Enlist soybeans and Enlist E3 soybeans. Enlist cotton will join the lineup in southern locations.
Responsible use is key to system success
Field training is a component of the benefits-based Enlist Ahead management resource. Enlist Ahead is designed to help growers and applicators succeed while promoting the responsible use of the Enlist system. Additional benefits, including technology advancements, education and training and management recommendations, will also be highlighted.
“Knowledge is important to sustaining the technology for the long term,” Palmer said. “As we work to bring the technology to our customers, we will continue to provide them the training and education they need to be successful.”
Pending regulatory approvals, Dow AgroSciences expects to launch Enlist corn and Enlist soybeans in 2015, with Enlist E3 soybeans and Enlist cotton to follow.
For more information on dates and locations, ag professionals need to contact their local ag retailer, Dow AgroSciences sales representative or Enlist field specialist.
