Dow AgroSciences LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW), received two Agrow Awards, an international competition recognizing corporate and individual excellence for industry-leading technology and innovation within the agriculture research industry. The winning entries included:
Best Formulation Innovation Enlist Duo™ herbicide—The primary herbicide for the Enlist™ Weed Control System combines the active ingredients 2,4-D choline and glyphosate in an innovative premix formulation that is the first agrochemical formulation designed to reduce off-target movement and provides growers a way to fight glyphosate-resistant and hard-to-control weeds. The product is currently pending regulatory approvals in several geographies. Enlist is a next-generation system that combines innovative traits, herbicides and stewardship to deliver weed control that farmers need now.
Best Stewardship Program Refuge Advanced ® powered by SmartStax ® —One of the most innovative products in Dow AgroSciences’ Seeds and Traits portfolio, Refuge Advanced ® powered by SmartStax ® is the first single-bag solution helping growers meet regulated refuge requirements and protecting their crops from above- and below-ground pests with multiple insecticidal modes of action. This helps reduce the potential for resistance because it controls insects in a variety of ways. SmartStax ® also allows the size of the refuge required in the U.S. Corn Belt to be reduced from 20 percent to five percent, allowing growers to protect more of their overall crop and be exemplary stewards to the environment.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by our peers for our achievements in the agriculture research industry,” said Daniel R. Kittle, Ph.D., vice president, Dow AgroSciences Research and Development. “These awards illustrate our employees’ ability to innovate and deliver sustainable solutions for our growing world. Their hard work and dedication allows our company to succeed in helping farmers provide abundant, nutritious food now and for future generations.”
