Today Nufarm announced the availability of new Panther® SC herbicide. Panther SC is the first liquid formulation of flumioxazin available in the United States. Panther SC is a broad-spectrum broadleaf herbicide option for corn, soybean, cotton and peanut growers. It provides excellent residual control of tough broadleaf weeds such as marestail, Palmer amaranth, kochia and waterhemp. Panther acts quickly on tough weeds and the new liquid formulation makes mixing and loading faster and easier. “Panther SC gives crop producers a lot of flexibility in terms of application timing,” says Jerome Kovar, marketing manager for agricultural row crops with Nufarm. “It can be used in a fall burndown application, or it can be applied early preplant for burndown before planting, or applied preplant or pre-emerge for residual control in Roundup Ready® systems. And because Panther SC has flexible rotation options, using it lets growers pick the crop rotation that maximizes profits.” Other key benefits of Panther SC:
- It controls a broad spectrum of annual broadleaf and grass weeds, including most broadleaf weeds that are resistant to glyphosate
- It provides long-lasting residual weed control to keep fields clean
- It enhances the speed of control on a broader weed spectrum in labeled burndown programs
