Nufarm announced the launch of herbicide Tibet (fluroxypyr + picloram) in Brazil. The herbicide is recommended for weed management on pasture areas formed by forage grasses. According to the maker, the product demonstrated high efficiency in the control of weeds, considered the most difficult to manage, such as Zanthoxylum subserratum, Vernonia polysphaera (ironweed), Miconia Albicans, Sida glaziovii, Bauhinia forficata, Tecoma Stans, Senna tora (sickle pod), Malva Moschata (Musk Mallow), among others.
“It is a systemic, selective herbicide, adequate for the control of weeds with wide leaves having a herbaceous size, shrubs, and semi-shrubs,” according to agronomist Mario Drehmer, herbicide manager of the company.
He added that the active ingredients of Tibet are “recognized in the market by the precision with which it performs weed management in pasture areas”.
According to Drehmer, the herbicide has passed through a series of tests and research before arriving in the market. With the launch, associated with the new herbicide Sniper (fluroxypyr-meptyl + picloram), Nufarm seeks to consolidate its position as one of the leaders in the Brazilian agrochemicals market for pasture, offering a portfolio that covers all types of weeds.
“Another relevant characteristic of these herbicides is their flexibility, because they act on a wide spectrum of weeds, going beyond the more complex management. With Tibet and Sniper, we follow the strategy of offering to the rural producer cutting-edge technology in all segments of the pesticide market,” concluded the Nufarm manager.
