USDA Allows Commercial Planting of Dow AgroSciences' Enlist™ Corn, Soybean TraitsSeptember 24, 2014
The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) has given the final approval to Dow AgroSciences' Enlist™ corn and soybean traits in the United States. The Enlist traits are part of the Enlist™ Weed Control System, a new trait and herbicide technology that seeks to control herbicide resistant weeds. The approval applies to the Enlist corn, Enlist soybean and Enlist E3™ soybean traits. The company now awaits registration of Enlist Duo™ herbicide with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the companion herbicide to the Enlist traits.
U.S. farmers, who anxiously waited for the commercial availability of the Enlist™ Weed Control System, voiced strong support following the USDA decision. Brooks Hurst, a farmer from Tarkio, Missouri, said: "Tools like Enlist will help me do my job more efficiently and productively. That benefits Americans in two ways: It puts food on our tables, and contributes to a healthy economy."
