Nufarm Expands Cotton Solutions Portfolio with Pentia

Nufarm Americas, Inc. is pleased to announce the addition of Pentia Plant Regulator to its expanding portfolio of performance-driven cotton solutions. Acquired from BASF, Pentia will be offered exclusively by Nufarm for the 2021 crop year and beyond.

Pentia offers a track record of performance in maximizing cotton yield. Cotton growers investing in greater crop potential often turn to Pentia for improved plant uptake, rainfastness, height management, boll retention, earliness and yield potential. Pentia supports better fruit retention and height-to-node ratio as well.

“The faster absorption of Pentia vs traditional, unenhanced mepiquat has benefited cotton growers for several years,” says Chris Bowley, Nufarm customer and brand marketing manager. “Growers are able to increase boll set, harvest earlier and improve yield with the Pentia formulation, and Nufarm is pleased to add this well-known and trusted brand to our cotton enhancement portfolio.”

Pentia joins Nufarm’s growing lineup of enhanced cotton products, including Terminate Cotton Harvest Aid and CutOut Cotton Defoliant.
