EPA approves label changes for Cheetah Herbicide

cheetah herbicideThe Environmental Protection Agency has approved label changes to Chetah Herbicide from Nufarm Americas Inc. that allows postemergence use on glufosinate-tolerant crops, including soybeans, cotton, corn and canola.

“The new language provides clarity around the use of Cheetah in all crop traits that are tolerant to glufosinate,” cuustomer and brand marketing manager Chris Bowley said in a news release. “This goes beyond labeling only for LibertyLink systems, which has been an application limitation for many producers as other glufosinate-tolerant crop traits gain market share.”

Nufarm’s new label will help growers comply with regulatory requirements and help retailers to manage inventories through herbicide’s wide range of labeled crop varieties.

Cheetah, which contains the active ingredient glufosinate-ammonium, also is approved as a tankmix partner for Enlist One herbicide.
