Multiple modes of action needed for weed control
The Enlist Weed Control System was designed with resistance management principles in mind. It combines crop herbicide tolerance traits that enable the use of glyphosate, glufosinate, and fop chemistries (depending on the crop) as well as new 2,4-D choline. Accordingly, the Enlist system will exert control against weeds in multiple ways, making it more difficult for weeds to adapt.
Enlist Duo, the Enlist herbicide solution that is a proprietary blend of glyphosate and the new 2,4-D choline, will be part of a program that also recommends foundation herbicides. This approach will provide even more modes of action for the weed control program.
“We understand the challenges posed by resistant weeds, and have designed a system to address them,” said Joe Vertin, Global Leader, Enlist Weed Control System, Dow AgroSciences. “Enlist will partner with and improve the glyphosate system, and our program approach will provide multiple modes of action to give growers the weed control they need.”
