Dow AgroSciences announces Enlist

Agriculture.com Staff 08/31/2011 @ 11:32am

Dow AgroSciences has unveiled the name of the herbicide component in its Enlist Weed Control System. The product will be known globally as Enlist Duo herbicide, and will be offered as a post emerge product for use over the top of Enlist crops.

Duo herbicide will offer multiple modes of action through a combination of glyphosate and proprietary Colex-D Technology, which will feature new 2,4-D choline. Not an amine and not an ester, 2,4-D choline will retain the powerful weed control of traditional forms of 2,4-D as well as the favorable environmental profile.

Colex-D Technology, a technology package featured in Enlist Duo, is comprised of 2,4-D choline, the latest in formulation science and a proprietary manufacturing process. Those components taken together provide growers new usability benefits with the herbicide, including ultra-low volatility, minimized potential for drift, lower odor and better handling characteristics.

When commercialized, the Enlist Weed Control System will introduce an innovative combination of herbicides and herbicide-tolerant traits in elite germplasm to meet the weed-control challenges facing farmers. It will build upon and improve the glyphosate system.

“Enlist Duo herbicide with Colex-D Technology is an integral component of the Enlist system and will offer growers an important tool to prevent and manage tough weeds,” says Damon Palmer, Dow AgroSciences U.S. commercial leader for the Enlist Weed Control System. “It is technology tailored for the grower, and represents another way we’re building on the glyphosate system so growers can continue farming the way they prefer.”

Pending regulatory approvals, the Enlist™ Weed Control System will be available in corn in the 2013 crop year, followed by soybeans in 2015 and cotton in 2016.
