Nufarm announced the availability of new Panther SC herbicide. Panther SC is the first liquid formulation of flumioxazin available in the U.S.

Panther SC is a broad-spectrum broadleaf herbicide option for corn, soybean, cotton and peanut growers. It provides 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 pre-plant for burndown before planting, or applied pre-plant 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.

Panther SC can be applied pre-emergence on soybeans and peanuts. Application timing in corn is 7-30 days prior to planting, depending on the application rate and rainfall. Panther SC can also be applied to cotton in post-directed applications using a hooded or shielded spray unit.
