As part of the regulatory process, EPA will soon open a docket for public comment for Enlist Duo ™ herbicide for use on corn and soybeans. This comment period offer supporters of American agriculture the chance to express the urgent need for this technology.
During the period of time Enlist corn and soybean traits have been under regulatory review at USDA and Enlist Duo™ herbicide has been under review at EPA, the lack of new weed control tools has led to a significant increase in resistant weeds and an increase in other herbicide use or increased tillage. Enlist crops will enable the use of additional herbicidal modes of action to manage herbicide resistance for those who have it and help to proactively manage it for those who do not. Uncontrolled weeds can have a detrimental impact on crop yield.
Farmers and others in the agricultural industry need to stay ahead of weeds and provide an abundant food supply and renewable sources of biofuels for our country and the world. Canadian regulators have already approved all components of the Enlist system and Brazil, which continues to shorten its approval times for biotech crops, is moving forward on its review.
