EPA Expands Use of Enlist Products

The Environmental Protection Agency this week approved the use of Enlist One and Enlist Duo in 134 additional counties. Enlist One and Enlist Duo is approved in all counties of Arkansas, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, and South Dakota, and six counties in Texas. A coalition of farm and commodity groups welcomed the EPA action. American Soybean Association President Brad Doyle says, “We appreciate EPA hearing our concerns and working to quickly restore access in many counties where science and data support doing so.” In January, EPA issued new seven-year registrations for over-the-top use of herbicides Enlist and Enlist Duo on herbicide-tolerant corn, cotton, and soybeans. While the new registrations were welcome and worked for many growers across the country, producers in 217 counties were impacted by county-level bans. Grower groups have urged EPA to review additional data that may allow for lifting county-level bans and view the announcement this week as a significant step toward that outcome.
