Dow launches Enlist One herbicide

Enlist One offers benefits of 2, 4-D with ability to tank mix with glufosinate.

Dow AgroSciences has launched Enlist One herbicide, a straight-goods 2,4-D choline product featuring Colex-D technology. 

Enlist One joins Enlist Duo herbicide, a proprietary blend of 2,4-D choline and glyphosate, in the herbicide lineup for the Enlist system. 

“Farmers growing Enlist cotton have found the flexibility of Enlist One to be especially helpful. They get the benefits of 2,4-D choline and the ability to tank-mix with glufosinate for effective weed control,” says Chris Byus, Enlist herbicides product manager. “With two Enlist herbicides, farmers can select the one that best fits their weed management needs. Both contain Colex-D technology to help them land and stay on target.”

Enlist One has received federal registration for use in 34 cotton, corn and soybean states.

Taking care of business

Austin Warbington is the fourth generation to farm with his family in Georgia. He has a zero-tolerance policy for weeds and is diligent about keeping them out of his cotton fields.

“The tank mix of 2,4-D choline and glufosinate really did exactly what we wanted it to. Two weeks after application, we had excellent control,” Warbington says. He has to control tough weeds, like pigweed, in his fields. “We were able to eliminate most weeds. It really took care of business. If you walked out and looked at any weed, you’d see the majority of them were very crispy.”

With the addition of Enlist One herbicide, farmers have a choice between two herbicides containing 2,4-D choline for their Enlist crops. Tank-mix partners for both herbicides are listed on EnlistTankMix.com.
