Sales and service of Torpedo for bareground applications now handled by Dow AgroSciences

Nufarm Agriculture Inc and Dow AgroSciences Canada Inc. recently announced a marketing collaboration on Torpedo Herbicide for the Canadian Industrial Vegetation Management (IVM) market.

Torpedo contains two active ingredients with two different modes of action, flumioxazin (group 14) and pyroxasulfone (group 15), in one granule. Combining these two active ingredients provides control of both broadleaf weeds and grasses for three months or more.

“Dow AgroSciences is excited about this partnership with Nufarm Agriculture, as it complements our industry leading IVM portfolio. For non-crop applications, we look forward to working with customers on the enhanced benefits of mixing Torpedo with Dow AgroSciences products such as ClearviewTM, MilestoneTM, SightlineTM, OcTTainTM XL and VP480TM glyphosate herbicide,” says Scot Middleton, Specialties Portfolio Marketing Leader at Dow AgroSciences. “Dow AgroSciences now offers a complete portfolio of both selective and non-selective herbicide solutions to the IVM market.”

Nufarm Agriculture will continue to manage sales to the wholesale channel for this Valent branded product, while Dow AgroSciences has agreed to provide sales and marketing support to service Torpedo.
