Nufarm adds Leopard herbicide to crop protection family
Nufarm Americas Inc. has launched Leopard Herbicide, a dual-active formulation for soybeans, field corn, and cotton. Leopard uses the active ingredient glufosinate to boost foliar activity and adds residual to burndown applications, so fields stay clean up to planting.
“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,” says 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.”
In corn and soybeans, the recommended dosage is 29 to 43 ounces per acre; the annual maximum use rate is 43 ounces per acre. For Liberty Link hybrids and varieties, the annual maxiumum use rate is 86 ounces per acre.
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 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.
