Dow unveils Enlist app
Dow AgroSciences has unveiled an app to assist growers and applicators with its Enlist herbicide tolerance technology. The Enlist Ahead app combines real-time local weather data, capabilities to map crop fields and trait technologies, and other important considerations for users to review before making a responsible herbicide application, the company points out. After application details are entered, the app indicates whether conditions meet label requirements and best management practices. It also rates the application programme with regard to resistance management. The app will be available for download once the Enlist system is commercialised. The USDA is close to deregulating Dow's Enlist maize and soybeans (see this issue). Dow expects to introduce DAS40278 maize and DAS68416 soybeans in 2015, and DAS44406 (Enlist E3) soybeans and DAS81910 cotton in 2016.
