Nufarm Launches Panther MTZ – “A More Effective Load Of Metribuzin”

Nufarm Americas, Inc. this week announced the launch of Panther MTZ herbicide. Panther MTZ is the latest in Nufarm’s portfolio of Panther herbicides formulated to help growers gain weed management efficacy, resistance management and lasting residual control that improves flexibility come spring.



Panther MTZ offers two modes of action, the dual-benefit of swift burndown and lasting residual, and an optimal load of metribuzin at a lower application rate than competing premixes.

“One of Nufarm’s key goals is to expand the tools available to farmers to help them fight challenges posed by weeds,” said Chris Bowley, Nufarm Brand and Customer Marketing Manager. “Panther MTZ improves results where they’re needed most – combatting weed resistance, assisting burndown and adding residual control. In addition to pre-plant application, growers can apply this fall to ease weed pressure out of the gate this spring.”

“Possibly the strongest attribute of Panther MTZ is that it contains a more effective load of metribuzin where other premix products sometimes require the addition of extra metribuzin for certain applications,” added Bowley.

According to the company’s announcement, Panther MTZ delivers broad-spectrum control of more than 90 weed species and is labeled uses for soybeans, sugarcane, fallow (including wheat/fallow rotations), non-crop farm areas and industrial vegetation management. It provides flexible fall or spring application timing and tank mixing – and will be available in September 2020,

Panther MTZ herbicide is the latest addition to Nufarm’s growing list of herbicides that farmers can use for weed management year round. For information about the company’s crop protection solutions, visit nufarm.com/uscrop.
