As one of the first in the region to plant Enlist E3 soybeans four years ago, we have been consistently impressed with the system. Throughout the years we’ve planted larger increases year-over-year and seen great agronomics, great yields and no off-target movement with the herbicides. We call it “dead weeds and peace of mind”.
Why do I share this? Because four years of experience with this system has tough us a few things. Here are my top 5:
Yield testing has occurred in our entire market footprint since 2011. While the delays in overseas approvals were frustrating, these delays allowed breeders to incorporate extensive disease packages into most varieties. That means we now have agronomics to fit most field conditions.
If you’ve been considering adding Enlist to your operation, talk to your local Peterson Farms Seed dealer or give me a call at (866) 481-7333.
Or, check out our Enlist spray demo at Field Day on Sept. 5. We’ll share our findings on soybean tolerance, tank mix contamination and susceptible crop safety.
