Dow AgroSciences successfully produced 2,4-D choline in a commercial scale-up setting

November 07/2011

(Dow) -- Dow AgroSciences successfully produced 2,4-D choline in a commercial scale-up setting. This milestone is an indicator of the company's manufacturing expertise to produce Enlist Duo herbicide, which will be a highly differentiated herbicide solution for its Enlist Weed Control System. Once all regulatory approvals are secured, Enlist will introduce an innovative combination of herbicides and herbicide-tolerant traits in elite germplasm to meet the emerging weed control challenges facing farmers, while sustaining beneficial farming practices.


The new 2,4-D choline is a quaternary ammonium salt, which is different from 2,4-D amine or ester formulations. This technology retains the positive attributes of traditional 2,4-D products, such as the same weed control efficacy and favorable environmental profile, while providing growers new advantages for the management of resistant and hard-to-control weeds.


Colex-D Technology is a technology package featured in Enlist Duo and is comprised of 2,4-D choline, the latest in formulation science and a propriety manufacturing process. Those components taken together will provide growers with new benefits with the herbicide, including ultra-low volatility, minimized potential for drift, decreased odor and improved handling characteristics.
