Cotton growers in Texas gained more flexibility and better weed control when the state recently granted full access to the Enlist™ weed control system. Texas registered Enlist Duo® herbicide for use on cotton after federal registration happened in January 2017.
PhytoGen® brand varieties with the Enlist cotton trait lets growers use an additional mode of action postemergence. The Enlist weed control system includes postemergence applications of Enlist Duo herbicide — a combination of glyphosate and new 2,4-D choline — as well as glufosinate.
With tolerance to these three modes of action, cotton growers in Texas using PhytoGen brand varieties with the Enlist trait get the latest weed control technology combined with industry-leading early season vigor, yield and fiber quality.
Look for the W3FE designation in the name when identifying these new PhytoGen brand varieties. This technology is stacked with Genuity® Roundup Ready® Flex and the industry-leading, three-gene WideStrike® 3 Insect Protection. This gives growers:
- Season-long control of above-ground insects
- Improved bollworm control
- Bacterial blight resistance
