China gave its approval a month ago and the Philippines came through Thursday. Enlist E3 was developed by Dow AgroSciences, which is now part of Corteva Agriscience, and MS Technologies. Peterson Farms Seed President Carl Peterson says this news offers peace of mind. “Enlist offers three modes of action with glyphosate, glufosinate and 2,4-D choline; there are many fewer restrictions for Enlist than some of the other systems so growers are going to be able to get this sprayed relatively easy and get great weed control.” Enlist E3 is now commercially available. Peterson Farms Seed took a strong position on the Enlist technology and made sure it has large seed supplies. With the uncertainty of the global registration process, that was a gamble. “Honestly, up until Thursday morning, we weren’t sure if that was a good plan or not, but as a regional company and are focused on what is best for our growers; we felt we had to take the leap.”
