Crop protection

Nufarm manufacture a wide range of speciality chemicals for use in a diverse number of applications, but is most widely known as a supplier of phenoxy propionic, acetic and butyric herbicides in the form of MCPA, DB and MCPB, CMPP-p and DP-p and 2,4-D to the agricultural sector.

The picture on the left shows Charlock which has been treated with a phenoxy herbicide, showing early twisting symptoms associated with this important group of crop protection products. The plant will die approximately 2-3 weeks of treatment
These herbicides mimic the plant's own auxin hormone system and because of this, it is very difficult for weeds to develop resistance. This group of chemicals have been around for over 50 years and unlike many more modern chemicals, resistance has not become a major issue.

These specific hormones are only found in plants and have no similarity to hormones found in fish or animals
