FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Nufarm Expands Glyphosate Portfolio with Continued Innovation
BURR RIDGE, Ill. (January 15, 2009) – Nufarm Americas Inc. announced that the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued a Section 3 registration for Credit® Xtreme
herbicide, a new high-load glyphosate formulation.
Credit Xtreme features Dual Salt Technology®, a patented blend of potassium and IPA
glyphosate salts developed by Nufarm. This innovative technology makes Credit Xtreme the
only Roundup® equivalent formulation load offering 4.5 lbs of glyphosate acid per gallon (also
called a 6 lb product in active ingredient) in a fully loaded product. And this easy-to-use
formulation offers better compatibility with phenoxy herbicides than Roundup® brands.
"Credit Xtreme is the latest innovation in glyphosate technology from Nufarm," says Dave Feist,
Product Manager for Nufarm. "It is another example of our company's commitment to
continuous improvement in glyphosate formulations, utilizing well over two decades of global
experience. Our aim is to provide growers with the tools they need to achieve maximum yields
Dunk Porterfield, Ph.D., Nufarm Product Development Manager, says Nufarm’s Dual Salt
Technology offers many advantages over and above powerful performance, from handling and
mixing to improved compatibility with phenoxy amine formulations.
"Credit Xtreme, with the latest generation glyphosate salts, is tank-mix compatible with
fungicides, insecticides and herbicides, particularly with phenoxy herbicides like 2,4-D,"
Porterfield says. "Its low-viscosity, low-foam formulation makes it easier to handle, and we have
proven its performance and crop safety with a substantial field trial investment over multiple
seasons in the US.”
Credit Xtreme herbicide also treats more acres per gallon with no need for additional surfactants,
although customers may still add proprietary products as locally determined. It is approved for
use on a number of Roundup Ready crops, including Flex cotton.
