All new 2,4-D innovation for the next generation

Developed in Australia, Nufarm DROPZONE offers growers never-before-seen technology, delivering increased weed control through droplet optimisation.

With a more uniform and effective spray pattern, Nufarm DROPZONE ensures more of the total spray volume is delivered in the optimal size range (150 to 720 μm), by not only reducing drift, but also reducing oversized droplets that can lead to poor weed control. Nufarm DROPZONE’s unique 2,4-D amine formulation technology is a low odour and non-volatile solution that provides less impact to users and the community.

Droplet Optimisation

Maximises droplets delivered in the optimal size range (150 – 720 micron), negligible driftable fines and reduces droplet bounce off target.

Unique Formulation

Increases speed brownout & efficacy, enhances droplet retention and speed of uptake

Low Odour

Reduced sensitivity to the user & community.

A non-volatile formulation for use in Fallow, Sugarcane, grass pasture & salvage spraying of cereals

Droplet Optimisation

The droplet optimisation technology within the formulation of Nufarm DROPZONE has enabled the delivery of a narrow span of droplet size compared with traditional 2,4-D amine formulations, this span reduction is seen in the below data which shows Nufarm DROPZONE reduces the span by 14% when applied as very coarse spray quality.

Unique Formulation

Nufarm DROPZONE with droplet optimisation technology, delivers a greater volume of spray solution in the optimal range (150 µm to 720 µm), for Very Coarse, Extra Coarse and Ultra Coarse spray qualities.

The chart shows Nufarm CRUCIAL + Nufarm DROPZONE when applied with an Ultra Coarse spray quality, delivers nearly double the total spray volume within the optimal droplet range compared to traditional 2,4-D + Nufarm CRUCIAL.

Superior efficacy

Australian innovation for uniquely Australian challenges

Nufarm has invested significant resources and over 10 years into developing Nufarm DROPZONE, which is another demonstration of our continued 2,4-D stewardship for Australian agriculture and commitment to Australian growers.

As Australian Through and Through, we always look for ways to support local agriculture through our investment in Australian research, development and manufacturing. That’s why we’ve designed, developed and tested DROPZONE right here in Australia, for Australian conditions.

Reduced buffer zones thanks to droplet optimisation technology

When you’re spraying, droplets less than 150 microns are ineffective and have an increased potential to drift. The most common solution up to now has been to use a larger spray quality – like very coarse or ultra coarse – or drift reducing adjuvants (DRA), which both increase droplet size.

This innovation means that Nufarm DROPZONE is getting more of the spray volume at the ideal size – between 150 and 720 microns – so you’re getting excellent coverage and efficacy, while reducing the potential for drift. With DROPZONE, up to 96% of spray volume is in that ideal zone. There’s no more compromise – that’s what makes it a real game changer.
