Sponsored: Enlist™ Herbicides Check All the Boxes for Ohio Farmer

Kevin Miller is no fan of weeds. The northwest Ohio farmer says a clean field helps maintain the crop’s yield potential, makes harvest easier and contributes to a cleaner start the following season.

Miller is growing Enlist™ E3 soybeans for seed production for a second time. He’s seen the value of the Enlist weed control system and the ability of Enlist herbicides to control even his toughest weeds. He’s used Enlist Duo® herbicide in past years and tried Enlist One™ herbicide this year.

“Enlist herbicides provide excellent weed control,” Miller says. “After application, weeds start turning yellow in a couple of days. It can take a little while for them to turn totally brown, but they stop growing.”

This spring, Miller started his weed control program with a burndown using 2,4-D plus a residual product featuring three modes of action. He followed with Enlist One postemergence in a tank mix. He’s monitoring fields and plans to use glufosinate if he needs a second postemergence application.

“The tolerance Enlist soybeans have to glufosinate is a definite plus,” Miller says. “It gives us another mode of action postemergence. I just think having another mode of action is really important.”

Miller says the Enlist E3 soybeans tolerate Enlist herbicides well. He saw no stress on the crop. “They just kept growing,” he says.

Equally important, he likes the on-target application that the Colex-D® technology enables in both Enlist herbicides. “The herbicide did not move at all,” he says.

Of course, the main value is weed control. Miller battles marestail and is starting to see some glyphosate-resistant giant ragweed. He says the biggest benefit is having a clean, weed-free field.

“I would really encourage people to check out Enlist soybeans,” he says. Many farmers like Miller are looking forward to large-scale commercialization of Enlist soybeans.
