Nufarm takes over Velocity SP in Canada
Nufarm has become the exclusive Canadian distributor of the herbicide, Velocity SP (Kumiai Chemical's bispyribac-sodium), for use on golf courses and turf farms. The post-emergence herbicide provides the only option for the control of annual bluegrass (Poa annua) in turf, the company points out. It also controls other grass weeds, including creeping bentgrass (Agrostis stolonifera), perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne), Kentucky bluegrass (P pratensis) and tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea). Velocity SP was previously marketed exclusively in Canada by Engage Agro.
