The Corteva Agriscience research and development engine is powering delivery of more Enlist E3® soybean varieties, resulting in new germplasm, many with unique Corteva genetics and advanced performance with improved agronomic packages. Starting with the 2023 season, AgVenture has access to more options than ever before to match the best varieties to our customers’ fields.
Many farmers have utilized Enlist® herbicides with Colex-D® technology on their Enlist E3® soybean and PhytoGen® Enlist® cotton acres this season, and industry demand for Enlist E3 soybeans continues to grow. Some questions have been raised about leaf malformation (often referred to as “leaf cupping”) on Enlist E3 soybeans in some fields. This advisory statement reviews the testing record for the Enlist E3 soybean trait and provides resources for help in identifying symptomology that may be seen on Enlist E3 soybeans, soybeans from other trait platforms or conventional soybeans.
The status of corn is an interesting one even after most have caught some rain. The wind and/or hail issues that ran through several states left corn beat up and laid down. Across Missouri, Iowa, and Illinois, it is tasseling or will be within the next week or two. Corn is very short with shorter than normal internodes.
So you finally got, or are about to get, some rain. Whew! Good news after a tough 6-8 weeks here in the Midwest. What now?
You’ve no doubt heard a lot of talk about instances of widespread injury to non-dicamba-tolerant soybeans. Many farmers have reported fields with distinct dicamba symptomology, uniformly visible across fields. Weed scientists and university extensions have been investigating this issue and looking for possible explanations for what is causing in-crop dicamba to apparently move beyond labeled buffer zones. These experts believe that, under certain conditions, volatilized dicamba is likely becoming “trapped” in the air, where it can then move to distant fields.
