The soybean herbicide landscape has changed considerably, leaving farmers looking for additional soybean weed management options so they can be confident in their system.

Seed selection is a critical first option to consider. Golden Harvest offers farmers the broadest choice of soybean herbicide tolerance trait platforms, including a supply of Enlist E3® soybeans for 2021 planting.

Strong Fit for an Overall Weed Management Plan

One of the most important components of an effective weed management strategy is the tank mix options available to manage tough, resistant weeds. Enlist E3 soybean varieties offer tolerance to 3 modes of action: 2,4-D choline, glyphosate and glufosinate to deliver outstanding weed control with reduced application restrictions and application risks. By having 3 different modes of action, farmers are able to better control problem weeds like giant ragweed, marestail and waterhemp.

Getting crops off to a strong start begins with an integrated weed management system. Using a preemergent herbicide, such as BroadAxe® XC or Boundary® 6.5 EC, and then following up with an early post-emergent herbicide application, such as Sequence® plus Enlist One®, allows the crop the ability to maximize yield potential, while also utilizing the trait technology to fight back against tough to manage weeds.

Ready for 2021 and Beyond
​​​​​​​
For the past 2 years, Enlist E3 soybeans have been a key part of the Golden Harvest soybean portfolio. Local Golden Harvest Seed Advisors can help farmers navigate the recent regulatory changes by providing more flexibility and confidence in their weed management systems.

For 2021, Golden Harvest expanded its soybean product portfolio with the release of 22 new soybean varieties. In addition to Enlist E3, it offers farmers access to Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans and LibertyLink® GT27™ soybeans. The 22 new varieties range in relative maturity from 0.05 to 5.1 and provide advanced trait technology for maximum soybean yield potential.

  • 14 varieties include the Enlist E3 trait technology with 3 modes of action.
    • 3 offer Sulfonyl-Urea Tolerant Soybeans (STS®) herbicide tolerance and may increase tolerance to ALS-inhibitors, allowing higher application rates on select herbicides.
  • 6 varieties include Roundup Ready 2 Xtend trait technology.
  • 2 varieties include LibertyLink GT27 trait technology.

With the experience gained by working with these genetics over the past few years, Golden Harvest can ensure that farmers have enough product choices across the maturity zones, as well as agronomic characteristics they need to be successful in their local geography.
