Farmers in Canada will have access to the latest innovation in soybean technology as Dow AgroSciences LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company, and MS Technologies LLC have received approval for Enlist E3 soybeans. Canadian regulatory authorities have approved Enlist E3 soybeans, which are part of the Enlist Weed Control System and the third Enlist trait product approved in Canada. The Enlist E3 soybean trait was evaluated by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and Health Canada (HC), and was approved for food, feed, and environmental release. The companies anticipate launching Enlist E3 soybeans in 2015, contingent on approvals in key export geographies. Enlist E3 soybean cultivation registrations are also being sought in the United States, Brazil, and other South American countries.

The Enlist E3 trait stack confers tolerance to 2,4-D, glyphosate, and glufosinate. It is an innovative molecular stack that brings all three herbicide tolerances via a single transgenic event, presenting a unique advantage for customers of Dow AgroSciences, MS Technologies, and future licensees. Because the Enlist E3 trait is a single genetic event, breeding efforts can quickly advance superior performing soybean seeds for farmers.  

“Science continues to provide the base for solutions needed by farmers in a world of scarce resources and ever-growing population,” says Daniel R. Kittle, Ph.D. and vice president, Research and Development at Dow AgroSciences. “Enlist E3 soybeans illustrate how novel technology can be used to accelerate innovation and address significant weed challenges while providing the performance farmers must have to remain competitive.”

“Driving the agricultural industry forward starts with elite germplasm and great traits,” said Harry Stine, manager, MS Technologies. “Enlist E3 is breakthrough technology that will help farmers optimize their yields and meet growing demand across the globe.”

Enlist is a next-generation system that combines innovative traits, herbicides, and stewardship to deliver weed control that farmers need now while sustaining beneficial farming practices. Enlist corn and Enlist soybean traits were approved in October 2012 in Canada for food, feed, and environmental release and Enlist Duo herbicide was approved in Canada in May 2013.
