Nufarm announces launch of Leopard™ Herbicide
Morrisville, NC (July 21, 2021) — Nufarm Americas Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of Leopard™ Herbicide. Leopard is the latest in Nufarm’s portfolio of innovative herbicides formulated to deliver exceptional planting flexibility for soybeans, field corn and cotton.
Leopard’s dual-active formulation boosts foliar activity and adds residual to burndown applications, so fields stay clean up to planting. Leopard lets you keep your crop options open – so you can make crop decisions based on weather conditions and commodity price fluctuation.
“Based on SU chemistry, and with a superior granular formulation, Leopard provides growers with another fall or early spring option in their efforts to manage herbicide resistance, particularly prior to planting soybeans, corn and cotton,” said Chris Bowley, Customer & Brand Marketing Manager. “With excellent residual activity, Leopard is an ideal tank-mix partner for many foundational burndown products. Also, the label allows corn growers even more flexibility as the application window for corn extends all the way up to planting.”
As mentioned, Leopard is a highly compatible tank-mix partner for burndown herbicides like glyphosate and 2,4-D due to its low-use rate. It may be applied 30 to 45 days prior to planting for increased cropping flexibility – and is available for purchase from Nufarm Channel partners commencing mid-July.
Leopard herbicide is the latest addition to the Nufarm’s growing list of herbicides that farmers can use for weed management year round, from “Harvest to Canopy™”. For information about all of the crop protection solutions available from Nufarm, visit nufarm.com/uscrop.
