Technology touches every facet of our lives. It has changed how we work, how we socialize, how we communicate. Technology has also changed the products we use day in and day out. Computers are faster, cars are safer, you get the idea.

At Nufarm we focus on chemistry technology. Innovation is at the core of every new solution we create and that is why we are especially honored to sponsor Technology Month 2014.

When it comes to plant protection products we understand that performance, cost, image and the environment are all very important considerations. Our dedicated chemistry labs are leaders in formulating solutions to fit these ever growing and changing needs. And, with an expanded portfolio, we now offer more chemistries than ever to help lawn and landscape business thrive. Two recent product additions include Last Call and Change Up herbicides.

Last Call herbicide delivers powerful control of more than 40 grassy and broadleaf weeds, but the beauty of Last Call is in the flexibility it offers. Developed with a proprietary mix of fenoxaprop, fluroxypyr and dicamba, Last Call kills crabgrass at most growth stages – including mid-tiller – and it can be applied to most managed cool-season and Zoysia turf areas.

Accounts sensitive to 2,4-D now have more options too. Change Up premium selective herbicide strikes out more than 200 weeds without 2,4-D and it does it quickly to help reduce callbacks. This dependable post-emerge product is labeled for many cool- and warm-season turfgrasses.

Each day is an opportunity to reach for something new. Whether your goal is performance, sustainability or anything in-between, our promise is to deliver more options in quality solutions to help you achieve the best possible results. Chemistry technology is at the forefront of making our products better and your days brighter.
