Nufarm will soon market Goal 2XL and GoalTender herbicides
Morrisville, NC (February 3, 2020) — Nufarm Americas, Inc. announced today that it has entered into a distribution agreement with Nutrichem to market GoalTender® and Goal® 2XL herbicides. The marketing rights will transition from Corteva Agriscience to Nufarm in September 2020. The Goal brands are a logical expansion of Nufarm’s specialty crop herbicide portfolio, which the company plans to strengthen to support the needs of its US channel partners and the growers they supply.
“Goal 2XL and GoalTender are a gold standard among oxyfluorfen formulations, providing residual herbicide programs with staying power, up to 10 months,” said Dan Beran, Nufarm technical services director. “This activity can equate to time and cost savings – two factors that make a critical difference in the success of a season.”
Distributors, retailers and growers of tree nuts, grapes, tree fruit, cotton and many vegetables crops can begin to source Goal 2XL and GoalTender manufactured by Nufarm this fall to manage dozens of broadleaf weeds and grasses. These herbicides work on contact to deliver post- and pre-emergence control. Both formulations provide strong control of actively growing weeds and also form a soil barrier to block the establishment of emerging weeds for an extended period of time.
Goal 2XL’s user-friendly emulsifiable concentrate delivers powerful performance while GoalTender’s water-based formulation holds well to soil and performs at lower rates with less environmental load. All labeled use rates deliver burndown of existing broadleaves and provide long-lasting pre- and post-emergence activity.
Goal 2XL and GoalTender herbicides add depth and choice for customers, joining existing Nufarm burndown solutions such as Credit® Xtreme, Cheetah®, Tuscany® SC, Grapple® and more. For the full lineup of Nufarm crop solutions, visit Nufarm.com/uscrop.
