Leopard™

SELECTIVE HERBICIDE

New from Nufarm, Leopard™ Herbicide delivers exceptional planting flexibility for soybeans, field corn and cotton. Leopard’s dual-active formulation boosts foliar activity and adds residual to burndown applications so that fields stay clean up to planting. With extremely wide application window options, from fall to early preplant burndown, Leopard lets you keep your crop options open – so you can make crop decisions based on weather conditions and commodity price fluctuation. And if field corn is your crop of choice, you can even apply Leopard at, and/or immediately after, planting.

competitive advantages

• Dual-active formulation boosts post activity and provides residual control

•  Excellent rotational tool with alternative MOA for resistance management

•  Lasting early-season control of many broadleaf, grass and winter annual species

•  Low-use rate and excellent tank mix partner for burndown herbicides like glyphosate and 2,4-D

•  Apply 30–45 days prior to planting for increased cropping flexibility; field corn can be planted immediately after application

Application

FIELD CORN – PREPLANT AND PRE-EMERGENCE

Rate: 1.5–2.7 oz/A

Timing: Leopard may be applied preplant after fall harvest through early spring, up to planting, whenever the ground is not frozen, to control emerged weeds and to provide limited residual control of early-emerging spring weeds. Additionally, Leopard may be applied any time after planting, but before corn emergence. Do not apply post-emergence to corn. In the state of Florida east of US 231, and Georgia, apply Leopard at least 30 days prior to planting. Control of emerged weeds will require the addition of spray adjuvants as noted in the label.

 

COTTON AND SOYBEANS – PREPLANT ONLY

Rate:

• 1.5 oz/A 30 days prior to planting

• More than 1.5–2.0 oz/A 60 days prior to planting

• 1.5–2.7 oz/A 0 days or more prior to planting soybeans with BOLT® Technology

Timing: Leopard may be applied preplant after fall harvest through early spring 30 days or more prior to planting if using 1.5 oz/A or 60 days or more prior to planting if using more than 1.5–2.0 oz/A whenever the ground is not frozen, to control emerged weeds and to provide limited residual control of early-emerging spring weeds.
