January 8, 2019 Peterson Farms Seed is leading the way in bringing Enlist E3™ soybeans to area farmers for 2019 planting. Peterson Farms Seed has 11 new Enlist E3 soybean varieties this season, each selected and tested to perform in North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota.
This much anticipated product offering represents years of research and extensive testing conducted in local soils by Peterson Farms Seed’s research department.
Carl Peterson, President, says, “We have been growing Enlist soybeans on our farm for four years and have had great results with both the herbicide and the genetics. The herbicide has given us great weed control along with ease of use and peace of mind. With our advanced position on the trait, we have been able to select the best of the best for our customers in 2019.”
In our test plots, the Enlist soybeans had excellent yield , with great weed control and low volatility in herbicide application. Peterson Farms Seed Agronomy Manager Adam Spelhaug likes that Enlist E3 soybeans provide a new choice for customers, noting, “This is the technology the farmers need for weed control. They really need another option to help manage weeds.” Spelhaug continued, “We like offering diversity and trying to find new things. I think adding more modes of action to what farmers can apply to their fields is going to be important.”
Peterson Farms Seed is an independent company focused totally on helping our customers raise their yields. “We always want to be on the front side of technology and the Enlist weed control system represents the next evolution in battling hard to control weeds,” Peterson said.
Peterson Farms Seed has Enlist E3 soybeans in stock and ready for sale with maturities ranging from Group 00 to Mid-Group 2. Farmers looking to learn more should contact their local Peterson Farms Seed dealer or visit PetersonFarmsSeed.com for more information.
