Share Adjust Comment Print

Corteva is accelerating the ramp-up of Enlist E3 soybeans to U.S. and Canadian farmers over the next five years.

The company says it is seeing strong demand for the technology from farmers, retailers and independent seed companies and expects planted acreage projections in 2020 to approach 20 per cent of the U.S. market – double original expectations.

“The decision to accelerate production of Enlist E3 soybeans, along with the Enlist One and Enlist Duo herbicides, ahead of the 2021 selling season reflects our continued focus on rapidly ramping up differentiated technology solutions that we expect will enable greater choice and value for growers over time,” said James C. Collins, Jr., Corteva Chief Executive Officer., in a press release

Enlist E3 soybeans are a triple-stack of herbicide tolerance, jointly developed and owned by M.S. Technologies, L.L.C. They incorporate glyphosate and glufosinate and are made to be used with Corteva’s new 2,4-D formulations in Enlist One and Enlist Duo herbicides.
