Nufarm announced the availability of new Panther SC herbicide; it 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,” said 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 as noted by Nufarm:

  • Controls a broad spectrum of annual broadleaf and grass weeds, including most broadleaf weeds that are resistant to glyphosate
  • Provides long-lasting residual weed control to keep fields clean
  • Enhances the speed of control on a broader weed spectrum in labeled burndown programs

“The extremely wet spring we’ve had in much of the country has made it difficult to control weeds effectively this year,” said Bob Bruss, Ph.D., technical services manager with Nufarm. “Many growers will be re-evaluating their weed control program to clean up troublesome weeds early in the season, in case weather delays or even prevents any post-emergence herbicide applications next year. Panther SC gives those growers a very effective, flexible, convenient herbicide option for burndown, preplant and pre-emergence herbicide programs.”

Panther SC can be applied pre-emergence on soybeans and peanuts. Application timing in corn is seven to 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.
