FINALLY! China approves the Enlist E3 soybeans! This is fantastic news for farmers everywhere! Enlist E3 soybeans are soybeans that have a triple-stacked tolerance to 3 different herbicides.

Which, as we all know, is a never-ending battle.
Right now, there are a few different herbicides that are approved to use on Enlist E3 soybeans. There’s Enlist Duo, which is a tank mix of 2,4D choline and glyphosate.
