DuPont Herbicides OK’d

Two new soybean herbicides from DuPont Crop Protection offer weed resistance management.


DuPont has received EPA registration approval for two soybean preemergence herbicides. Enlite and Envive herbicides feature two modes of action that will provide longer lasting, more consistent early season control of weeds that have developed tolerance and/or resistance to glyphosate and ALS chemistries.

Using DuPont’s proprietary homogenous blend technology, Enlite and Envive herbicides combine flumioxazin and DuPont sulfonylurea herbicides for consistent, highly effective weed control — even under cool, wet conditions. This technology enables rapid development of new herbicides with multiple active ingredients for improved resistance management.

The Envive herbicide blend is designed to control waterhemp and be used by growers in the longer growing seasons of the central and southern regions of the U.S. Enlite herbicide, which has no soil pH restrictions, allows growers in the northern regions of the U.S. better plant-back options when rotating from soybeans to corn or cereal crops, according to the news release.

Both provide contact plus residual control of winter annuals, marestail, lambsquarters, dandelion, and other glyphosate- and ALS-resistant weeds. The early-season control lasts long enough to make post-herbicide applications to crop canopy, according to a company press release.
