Court Rules EPA Cannot Vacate Enlist Duo Label

Hoosier Ag Today by: Hoosier Ag Today

A circuit court this week denied the Environmental Protection Agency’s motion to vacate the registration for Dow AgroScience’s Enlist Duo herbicide. The EPA filed a petition last fall to vacate the label, which contains both 2-4-D and glyphosate. The herbicide was developed to help farmers combat weed resistance. EPA claimed it was concerned that the combination of 2-4-D and glyphosate may be harmful to non-target plants. As a result, farmers can still use the product and ag retailers can still sell Enlist Duo for the upcoming growing season, according to AGProfessional.

The Enlist Duo was never removed from the market following the EPA motion. Enlist Duo still needs import approval from China. However, the product is registered in 15 Midwestern states.
