Enlist E3 Weed Control System - Why Growers are Switching

Enlist weed control systemAs one of the first companies to offer the Enlist E3® soybean platform in the 2019 planting season, we have heard tremendous feedback from folks across our footprint on the ease of use for growers managing the toughest weeds. Legend has also experienced for ourselves the performance results and advantages in numerous plots.

With a growing market share, Enlist E3 weed control system has had a monumental year in the adaptation and utilization of the industry-leading weed control technology in the soybean market across the U.S. So much so, that the demand for Enlist is expected to grow to greater than 30% market share in 2021 in the U.S., after first being commercialized in 2019. Which begs the question…

Why have folks made the switch to Enlist?

  1. Tolerances to 2,4-D choline, glyphosate and glufosinate for flexible weed control
  2. Enlist One® and Enlist Duo® herbicides are neighbor-friendly, with near-zero volatility
  3. No time-of-day application regulations or wind directional restrictions when applying Enlist herbicides near soybeans without the Enlist trait
  4. Can be used for burndown with other crops prior to planting crops without the Enlist trait
  5. Herbicides can be applied through R2 stage with no calendar date cutoffs
  6. Ability to mix Enlist One® herbicide tank mixed with qualified glyphosate products, Liberty® herbicide and AMS products for enhanced weed control (see EnlistTankMix.com)
  7. Enlist Duo® herbicide is 98% less volatile than a tank mix of BAPMA dicamba + glyphosate

To sum it up, Enlist Weed Control System is responsible, flexible, effective, and available.
