Nufarm’s Cheetah label amendment expands use
Morrisville, NC (April 3, 2020) — Nufarm Americas, Inc. announced Cheetah® Herbicide has received regulatory approval of amended label language. The updated label offers directions for the post-emergence application of Cheetah for weed control across several crops that contain glufosinate-resistant genetic traits, including soybeans, cotton, corn, and canola.
“The new language provides clarity around the use of Cheetah in all crop traits that are tolerant to glufosinate,” said Chris Bowley, Customer and Brand Marketing Manager. “This goes beyond labeling only for LibertyLink® systems, which has been an application limitation for many producers as other glufosinate-tolerant crop traits gain market share.”
Nufarm’s new label will help growers comply with regulatory requirements and help retailers to manage inventories through Cheetah’s wide range of labeled crop varieties. Bowley added, “Cheetah is also approved as a tank-mix partner for Enlist One® herbicide, increasing its utility in Enlist® crops.”
