Spring planting season is fast approaching, but there's time for some last-minute preparations.

How many items can you cross off this to-do list?


Planting Enlist E3 soybeans in 2022?

Are you planting Enlist E3 soybeans in 2022?  If so, one of the tools in the weed control toolbox will be the option to use one of the two registered 2,4-D choline herbicides for use on Enlist E3 soybeans.  In January 2022, the EPA approved a seven-year registration of Enlist One and Enlist Duo herbicides.  Enlist One and Enlist Duo are the only 2,4-D choline herbicides registered for over-the-top use in 2,4-D tolerant soybeans.  Enlist E3 soybeans are also tolerant to the over-the-top application of both glyphosate (Roundup) and glufosinate (Liberty) herbicides.

We begin the 2022 growing season in NNY with no drought classifications, for a welcome change. Our snow has mostly melted and soil frost is on the decline. The North Country is a tiny bit behind normal soil moisture as of this date in late March, but the deficit is small. March temperatures have been just a bit warmer than average so far.
