Trait Receives Import Approvals, Ready for Full Launch in U.S.

Adel, IA (February 21, 2019) — Stine® Seed Company is pleased to offer growers a full lineup of Stine Enlist E3 soybeans for the 2019 growing season. Enlist E3 soybeans are approved for cultivation in the U.S., Canada and Brazil and have received import authorization in importing countries, including China and the Philippines. The Enlist E3 trait is the only commercially available trait that confers tolerance to a new 2,4-D choline, glyphosate and glufosinate in a three-gene molecular stack. Stine has 37 Enlist E3 soybean options for growers to choose from in 2019.

“Stine Enlist E3 soybeans offer an advanced herbicide-tolerant technology that will bring growers high yields and exceptional performance,” says Myron Stine, president of Stine Seed Company. “The commercial launch of this trait marks a positive step forward for the soybean industry and growers who have struggled to find a good alternative mode of action for weed control.”

Developed by MS Technologies and Corteva Agriscience, agriculture division of DowDuPont, the Enlist E3 soybean system will benefit growers by providing maximum flexibility and convenience, along with the ability to use multiple modes of action for exceptional weed control. Enlist Duo® herbicide with Colex-D® is labeled for use over the top of Enlist E3 soybeans and contains a proprietary blend of glyphosate and a new 2,4-D choline. This results in unrivaled weed control designed to land and stay on target.
