W3E1, W3FE Varieties Are Here

PHY 137 W3E1 is a new early- to mid-maturing Upland variety for the southwest Cotton Belt with built-in genetic resistance to root-knot nematodes and bacterial blight.

It features the W3E1 trait package that combines the Enlist cotton trait and WideStrike 3 Insect Protection, giving cotton producers the choice to customize their weed-management program and save on input costs if they do not need a glyphosate-tolerant trait.

Growers can apply Enlist One herbicide and glufosinate herbicides over-the-top and pre- and postemergence herbicides labeled for cotton that do not contain glyphosate.

PHY 475 W3FE, a mid- to full-season Upland variety, is tailored to the unique agronomic needs of the Southeast, especially in Georgia. It’s an easy-to-manage variety with resistance to root-knot and reniform nematodes, as well as bacterial blight. The W3FE trait packages offers growers the option to control weeds with over-the-top applications of Enlist herbicides, glufosinate and glyphosate. Visit for 2023 high-yielding performance data.
