Nufarm PGR Added to 2019 PhytoGen Residual Rewards Program
Gin Out, a plant growth regulator from Nufarm Americas, Inc., has been added to the 2019 PhytoGen Residual Rewards program.
The program will offer qualifying growers a rebate of $0.25-per-acre for each 10-ounce application of Gin Out on PhytoGen brand cotton varieties containing WideStrike Insect Protection (designated WRF) or WideStrike 3 Insect Protection with the Enlist cotton trait (designated W3FE).
“We’re very happy to see Nufarm’s Gin Out plant growth regulator featured as a leading cotton product in the PhytoGen Residual Rewards program,” says Ken Barham, vice president of customer and brand marketing for Nufarm. “This is one more way for Nufarm to continue offering excellent, economical solutions for cotton growers.”
Gin Out modifies the cotton plant, reducing excessive cotton growth and increasing emphasis on boll development through its unique formulation of kinetin and mepiquat chloride. The product is featured in all eligible PhytoGen Residual Rewards geographies, with the exception of Arizona.
Duplosan – Nufarm’s post-harvest cotton destruction herbicide recently granted a 24(c) Special Local Needs registration for Texas – will also be part of the PhytoGen Residual Rewards program for Texas growers in 2019. Qualifying growers will receive a $3-per-acre reimbursement on each 32-ounce application of Duplosan on PhytoGen cottonseed varieties.
