Enlist is ready for weed resistance battle

Enlist field agents are helping corn and soybean growers prevent weeds in the 2016 growing season by introducing them to the Enlist weed control system among other helpful tools and growing tips. 

Agents are also introducing growers to the Enlist Ahead program that helps growers to prepare for the future with weed management, application technology and crop research.

“We saw a lot of rainfall during the 2015 growing season that hampered grower efforts to get into fields to control weeds,” Jonathan Siebert, Enlist field sales leader, said. “We’ve also had a wet fall and winter so far. This means growers will need to pay close attention to weed management plans this spring.”

Enlist field specialists also help with application requirements such as nozzles, spray pressure and tank cleanout practices.

“Growers who plan their herbicide applications can control weeds better and, by using multiple modes of action, help prevent the development of herbicide-resistant weeds,” Siebert said. “If retailers or growers have any questions, their regional Enlist field specialist or Dow AgroSciences representative can provide answers and additional sources of information. Our goal is to help growers achieve successful weed management for their fields in 2016 and in future years.”
