Enlist E3™ Soybeans: Dead Weeds and Peace of Mind



Four years ago

We first planted Enlist E3™ soybean increases on our farm and sprayed Enlist Duo™ herbicide, along with our normal pre-emerge program, on those acres. We experienced no off-target movement while enjoying ease of application, and dead weeds.

Three years ago

We planted several larger increases of Enlist soybeans on our farm and used the Enlist herbicide system. We experienced improved agronomics, great yields, no off-target movement while enjoying ease of application, dead weeds, and peace of mind.

We planted numerous trials of Enlist soybeans, several larger increases of new varieties, and several production fields with a handful of seed growers.  We all experienced great field performance, improved agronomics, great yields and no off-target movement while enjoying ease of application, dead weeds, a wider application window, and peace of mind.

Our production team sat down to contemplate our go-to-market strategy for Enlist soybeans. As always, one of the key points of discussion was the same as it has been every year:

“We will sell no seed that we wouldn’t be happy to plant on our own farm.”

And we are really happy to plant Peterson Farms Seed Enlist soybean varieties on our own farm. More than really happy.

So we took a leap of faith and produced a complete lineup and a large supply of Enlist soybeans for planting in 2019.

Why? Because we believe that for much of our territory, the Enlist system provides the simplest and most effective weed control system. Because we know that the genetics we are bringing forward carry the yields and agronomics you need on your farm. And because we are fully convinced that the needed final approvals will happen before spring planting.

We are proud to introduce the Peterson Farms Seed Enlist soybean lineup. Our varieties will cover any acre on your farm with IDC, Phytophthora resistance, SCN resistance and more – with the yields you need in these tough economic conditions. And a weed control system that is not only effective, but user friendly and easy to apply.

Don’t wait! See your Peterson Farms Seed dealer today to order the Enlist E3 soybeans you need for your farm.
