Enlist vs Extend Flex vs GTLL27

What’s everybody’s thoughts and plans for next year? Also if you do have a plan what variety’s do you prefer?

We r planting enlist beans. We plant 3.1 through 3.9.

So the rumors of yield draw backs compared to the others don’t scare you?

We planted all enlist beans this year and have yielded the same as liberty beans for what we have cut so far.

Sticking with Enlist soybeans. No yield drag that we have noticed over that last 2 years (100% Enlist soybeans). With the uncertainty of the Dicamba, remove that out of the equation, what do you have left with ExtendFlex?

Have planted all 3, was on Liberty boat since they came out just for weed control, have never seen yield spread. our farm highest bean yields have been with products with "yield drag". XtendFlex are worthless to me because all you have is liberty post, i might as well plant LLGT27 and get a residual upfront built in for a cheaper price.

Going all Enlist. Had one 1/4 of GT's this year and it was my only weedy field at harvest. Even where I had drown out spots in the enlist beans there were no weeds.

Enlist. As good or better yield than neighbors. Actually, have a weed control option after Dicamba's end of June date limit. Last year, I got some significant leaf curl from neighbor spraying dicamba on corn across the road - didn't reduce the yield at all (probably because it happened before R stage). Just make sure that you do the research to buy a quality brand/hybrid for your area. In my experience, brand/hybrid makes way more difference than trait stack.
