More US state approvals for Dow's Enlist Duo
The US EPA has approved Dow AgroSciences' herbicide, Enlist Duo (2,4-D choline + glyphosate), for use on its genetically modified herbicide-tolerant Enlist maize (DAS40278) and soybeans (DAS68416 and DAS44406) in a further nine states. The latest approvals allow use in Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Nebraska, Oklahoma and North Dakota. The EPA registered Enlist Duo for use in six states (Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin) in October 2014. Dow is introducing Enlist Duo this year along with a stewarded introduction of Enlist maize and seed production of Enlist soybeans. The company expects to launch Enlist and Enlist E3 soybeans in 2016-18 and Enlist cotton in 2016.
