Kochia is a scourge for soybean farmers in Western Canada. Kochia is a prolific seed producer, that is drought-tolerant and an early germinator. All Kochia populations are resistance to GROUP 2 herbicides. About 50% are GROUP 9 resistant, and 18% are GROUP 4 resistant to dicamba. 1 in 10 kochia populations have three-way resistance. With the Enlist Program Approach, a two-pass system that uses multiple modes of action, you can effectively control Kochia (resistant and non-resistant biotypes) in Enlist E3™ soybeans.
