Millions of acres are switching to Enlist E3® soybeans in 2021. As momentum builds, we've received hundreds of questions from farmers who are excited to plant Enlist E3 soybeans. Below are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about this innovative soybean weed control system. If you have additional questions, contact your local Pioneer team or check out the resources below. And remember, always read and follow label directions.
Enlist E3 soybeans have three herbicide tolerances — 2,4-D choline, glyphosate and glufosinate — for over-the-top applications of Enlist One® and Enlist Duo® herbicides, as well as glufosinate and glyphosate. This allows you to use a program approach to optimize weed control and help control weeds in the current season while limiting development of herbicide-resistant weeds in the future.
Enlist E3 soybeans have a different combination of herbicide tolerances than dicamba-tolerant soybeans. The primary difference is that you can apply Enlist™ herbicides — Enlist One or Enlist Duo — over the top of Enlist E3 soybeans.
Enlist herbicides have:
Enlist E3 soybeans are compatible with soybeans without the Enlist trait. You can apply Enlist™ herbicides on Enlist E3® soybeans planted right next to these compatible crops without a buffer. Enlist E3 soybeans provide tolerance to 2,4-D choline, glyphosate and glufosinate; they are not tolerant to dicamba. See the Enlist product label or Enlist product use guide for more information.
Enlist herbicides feature near-zero volatility and reduced potential for physical drift so Enlist E3 soybeans can be grown near compatible crops. You can apply Enlist herbicides on Enlist E3 soybeans planted right next to these compatible crops without a buffer when the wind is blowing within labeled wind speed range. Common compatible crops include:
Susceptible crops have a higher relative sensitivity to 2,4-D choline. It’s okay to spray when wind is blowing away from susceptible crops. Common susceptible crops include:
The Enlist™ weed control system provides an effective tool to use against herbicide-resistant weeds including glyphosate-resistant weeds, including but not limited to:
The Enlist trait provides flexibility to utilize a program approach to manage weeds with unique tools such as a tankmix of Enlist One and Liberty® herbicide.
A preemergence residual herbicide will set you up for better success when you make postemergence applications of an Enlist herbicide.
Using a preemergence herbicide as part of an integrated program approach helps improve weed control, reduce weed competition during key stages of crop growth and manage herbicide resistance.
Pioneer® brand Enlist E3® soybeans offer options to control the toughest weeds while limiting future herbicide resistance and delivering strong yield potential.

Enlist Duo® and Enlist One® herbicides are not registered for sale or use in all states or counties. Contact your state pesticide regulatory agency to determine if a product is registered for sale or use in your area. Enlist Duo® and Enlist One® are the only 2,4-D products authorized for use with Enlist crops. Consult Enlist herbicide labels for weed species controlled. Always read and follow label directions.
