The Environmental Protection Agency issued two seven-year registrations for Enlist Duo herbicide and Enlist One herbicide from Corteva Agriscience. According to the EPA, the new product labels feature robust control measures to protect non-target plants and animals, meet FIFRA standards and comply with the Endangered Species Act. NDSU Extension Pesticide Program Specialist Andrew Thostenson says due to the endangered species concerns one or both products will be prohibited in certain counties. Minnesota and South Dakota both have impacted counties, but North Dakota does not. Enlist Duo is restricted in Clay, Marshall, Polk, Redwood, Renville and Stearns counties in Minnesota. Enlist Duo and Enlist One herbicides are restricted in Bennett, Charles Mix, Gregory, Lyman, Mellette, Todd and Tripp counties in South Dakota.
