Dow Agrosciences has unveiled Enlist cotton in 2016, which according to the company represents the most innovative advancements in weed control technology for the cotton industry.

“Enlist cotton provides exceptional crop tolerance to Enlist Duo herbicide, a combination of glyphosate and new 2,4-D choline and full tolerance to glufosinate herbicides,” a Dow Agrosciences press release said.

Mike Griffin who participated in the 2015 Enlist cotton grower research plots said, “The Enlist system specifically has been brought forward to help control weed species that have just been unmanageable.”

“We look forward to using this technology to help us with those resistant and hard to control weeds,” Griffin informed.

Enlist cotton will be available in proven, consistent, high-yielding PhytoGen cottonseed and will be stacked with Genuity Roundup Ready Flex and WideStrike 3 Insect Protection.

Brian Barker, US seeds general manager, Dow AgroSciences said, “Dow AgroSciences is excited to bring forward this innovative technology in PhytoGen cottonseed to US cotton growers for the 2016 season.”

“It provides the much-needed, improved weed control to help maximize yield,” Barker added.

“Enlist Duo herbicide is optimised for on-target application with Dow AgroSciences' proprietary Colex-D technology,” the company stated.

“Colex-D technology not only minimises the potential for physical drift and provides near-zero volatility but also decreases odour and improves handling,” Dow informed.

With tolerance to three distinct modes of action like 2,4-D, glyphosate and glufosinate, Enlist cotton gives growers more flexibility in their weed control programs.

Using multiple modes of action delivers proven results; controlling resistant weeds in the field while helping growers, prevent resistance for seasons to come.

Enlist Duo herbicide is not yet registered for use with Enlist cotton, however, Dow AgroSciences anticipates registration in time for applications in 2016. (AR)
