Complete crop protection starts with the field and farm, individual management system and matching the best solutions with weed, pest or disease challenges.

Corteva Agriscience is proud to offer leading crop protection solutions, including a complete product lineup for soybeans. That means farmers can manage their soybean acres entirely with Corteva knowledge, technology and solutions – and it’s worth the investment.

What does a Corteva soybean acre look like?

From seed treatments to biologicals, Corteva offers a soybean management system that’s complete with solutions for every crop stage.

Crop establishment

Crop establishment starts with the seed. Selecting the right soybean trait system, like Enlist E3™ soybeans provides farmers a significant advantage with advanced seed technology that offers high yield potential and a robust herbicide tolerance. And when paired with Enlist™ herbicides, the soybean acre package is complete.

Enlist E3 soybeans are available in high yielding genetics with agronomic traits and provide robust herbicide tolerance to 2, 4-D, glyphosate and glufosinate to maximize weed control using multi-modes-of-action to manage the risk of herbicide tolerance.

Seeds also need pest and disease protection, and Corteva’s Seed Applied Technologies are proven to solve on-farm challenges and give soybeans their best start. Developed to enable each seed’s genetic potential and ultimately increase productivity, Corteva offers a full lineup of seed treatments, including Lumisena™ fungicide seed treatment and Lumiderm™ insecticide seed treatment that are the perfect pair for every Corteva soybean acre. Offering premium protection from phytophthora, bean leaf beetle and soybean aphids, both seed treatments can deliver uniform, healthy stands to maximize yield potential.

Early weed control

Implementing the Enlist™ Weed Control system on soybean acres means changing the way farmers approach weed management – for the better. Pairing Enlist E3 soybeans with Enlist herbicides and using a two-pass system sets up cleaner, weed free fields to achieve maximum yield potential.

A first pre-emergence application, using Canopy™ PRO or Diligent™ (depending on whether you have fleabane or waterhemp) will eliminate competition from a broad spectrum of early-season grass and broadleaf weeds.

In crop weed control

Once soybeans are established, a second pass, or follow up application of Enlist™ 1 or Enlist Duo™ at the 3-5 trifoliate stage sets the crop up for success. Enlist E3 soybeans have excellent crop tolerance enabling applications up to the R2 growth stage and are formulated with Colex-D technology that helps ensure Enlist herbicides land and stay on target.

Offering flexibility and choice, Enlist 1 is a stand-alone 2,4-D choline formulation that provides the flexibility to tank-mix and adjust the rates of glyphosate or Liberty® 200 SN (glufosinate) for hard-to-control and resistant weeds.

Enlist Duo provides the convenience of both 2,4-D choline and glyphosate in one formulation for control of grasses and broadleaf weeds including hard-to-control and resistant weeds.

Disease management and biostimulants

Protect your Corteva soybean acre with effective disease management solutions. When it comes to common diseases, farmers should always be wary of white mould and be prepared for some level of pressure each season, no matter the weather. Viatude™ is one of the latest fungicides available to protect and manage white mould in soybeans. Formulated with Onmira™ active, Viatude provides best-in-class white mould protection that’s delivered through a unique combination of two of the strongest sclerotinia and white mould actives on the market today, delivering multiple modes of action in an all-in-one premixed formulation for ease of use.

For farmers who really want to realize the strength of a Corteva soybean acre and maximize yield potential, adding a biostimulant like Utrisha™ N to supply nitrogen throughout the growing season, especially when soybeans need it the most, is the final investment in success. Utrisha N provides a sustainable, alternative source of nitrogen that reduces dependency of nitrogen uptake from the soil and ensures the plant has access to nitrogen all season long. Utrisha N can be tank-mixed with a fungicide application to conveniently provide soybeans access to late season nitrogen and push yields to the maximum.
