AgVenture announces availability of Enlist E3™ soybeans

Advanced soybean technology available for 2019 planting

Enlist E3 soybeans give farmers more options in controlling weeds and protecting valuable yields.

JOHNSTON, Iowa, February 22, 2019 ─ AgVenture, the nation’s largest network of independent Regional Seed Companies, is pleased to offer Enlist E3™ soybeans in its lineup.

One of the most advanced technologies in soybeans today, Enlist E3 soybeans offer tolerance to three herbicides: 2,4-D choline in Enlist™ herbicides, glyphosate and glufosinate. This gives farmers more options in controlling weeds and protecting valuable yields.

“AgVenture is all about helping to maximize farmers’ profitability,” said AgVenture General Manager Gene Kassmeyer. “That not only means offering the right genetics that help maximize yield potential, but also the right technology that maximizes weed control. We feel Enlist E3 soybeans enable both.”

The Enlist weed control system includes two herbicide options: Enlist Duo® herbicide and Enlist One® herbicide. Enlist Duo herbicide is a convenient blend of 2,4-D choline and glyphosate, while Enlist One herbicide is a straight goods 2,4-D choline with additional tank mix flexibility. Both herbicides feature 2,4-D choline with Colex-D® technology to provide superior weed control with near-zero volatility and minimized potential for physical drift.

“Enlist E3 soybeans are a really good fit for our business,” Kassmeyer added. “Our independent Regional Seed Companies experience all kinds of weed pressure…whether that’s pigweed in mid-south areas, waterhemp in Illinois and Iowa or ragweed in Indiana and Ohio, they all want and need a new tool to control weeds.”

AgVenture will be offering launch quantities of a number of new Enlist E3 soybean varieties for 2019 planting and a more enhanced product portfolio for 2020 planting. Resources and information for farmers interested in learning more about the Enlist weed control system—including a link to find an AgVenture local Regional Seed Company—can be found at www.agventure.com.
