Enlist Duo Receives EPA Approval in Additional States
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced its approval of Enlist Duo herbicide for use in additional states. Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Nebraska, Oklahoma and North Dakota now join the originally approved states – Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin, on the label for Enlist Duo.
A key component of the Enlist Weed Control System, Enlist Duo with Colex-D technology is the only herbicide to combine the proven performance of glyphosate with new 2,4-D choline for weed control in corn and soybeans.
The originally approved states were included on the federal label when the EPA registered Enlist Duo for use with Enlist corn and soybeans in October 2014.
Dow AgroSciences will continue to work with state regulatory authorities to obtain local approvals, according to a company report. Regulatory approvals are pending for Enlist cotton.
Growers stated Enlist Duo provided improved weed control — particularly of glyphosate-resistant weeds, according to a company report. In addition, growers were impressed by the lack of drift and volatility.
“Reduced off-target movement is important on our farm,” says Josh Lloyd, a Kansas farmer. “I want a product that will stay exactly where we spray it. With the new formulation, Enlist Duo with Colex-D technology gives me that peace of mind. And it’s a tool that will help many Kansas growers manage tough weeds.”
Dow AgroSciences will launch Enlist Duo in conjunction with a stewarded introduction of Enlist corn and seed production of Enlist soybeans in 2015. The company continues to work with the EPA to further expand the list of states on the federal label.
