The Enlist E3 soybean event includes, for the first time, three herbicide tolerance genes combined in a genetic event in the soybean genome. These genes provide tolerance to Dow AgroSciences’ Enlist Duo® with Colex-D® Technology (a combination of new 2,4-D choline and glyphosate) as well as glufosinate herbicide. A product offering of the Enlist system, Enlist E3 soybeans will be brought to market in high-yielding varieties for farmers who want improved weed control and high yields. The innovative product is being developed through a collaboration between MS Technologies and Dow AgroSciences.
The patent also covers methods of controlling weeds in a field of Enlist E3 soybeans by applying herbicides, including Dow AgroSciences’ new 2,4-D choline product, glyphosate, and/or glufosinate, over the field.
Dow AgroSciences’ Enlist herbicide tolerance traits and formulation innovations patent portfolio continues to grow in the United States and other key geographies. Dow AgroSciences has filed for broad patent protection for its Enlist traits in major cultivation countries around the world.
