EPA Approves Dow Enlist Duo Herbicide... Not Good!
The Environmental Protection Agency today announced formal registration of Dow AgroScience’s Enlist Duo herbicide. The seeds in Dow’s Enlist system—genetically modified corn and soybeans—won approval for commercial use last month from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The Enlist Duo herbicide contains glyphosate as well as a new form of 2,4-D, which is already used on other crops like wheat and on pastureland and golf courses.

“Enlist Duo will provide a new tool to help farmers manage troublesome weeds while growing [genetically engineered] corn and soybeans,” Jim Jones, the EPA’s assistant administrator in charge of chemical safety, told reporters. “Both 2,4-D and Glyphosate have long been in use in agriculture and around homes. 2, 4-D and Glyphosate are two of the most widely used herbicides to control weeds in the world.” Enlist seeds and crops that grow from them are resistant to both compounds.

Both are post emergent herbicides that break down in the soil in a matter of weeks, posing no long term ecological harm. Because of the Agent Orange association, 2,4-D is one of the most extensively studied agricultural chemicals in history. It’s also used by families around the world on their lawns, where their children and pets play, to no adverse effect.
