Nufarm Americas, Inc, is a subsidiary of Nufarm Limited and formulates products that serve the agricultural, professional turf, vegetation management and forestry markets in the U.S. In addition to its global reach, the company is a top supplier to the U.S. golf turf market — the world’s biggest — bringing innovation and choice to distributors, retailers and the professionals they serve.
Nufarm’s North American operation encompasses several business units serving agriculture, turf, ornamental and greenhouse, seed treatment, and industrial vegetation management in the United States and Canada. Nuseed, the company’s global seed business, also has a North American presence.
Nufarm’s manufacturing and formulation facilities include two plants in the Chicago area and one in Greenville, Mississippi. Its Morrisville, North Carolina location is close to RTP, and is home to its research and development, regulatory, and marketing teams.
Nufarm also offers expertise in planning and caring for naturalized areas on the golf course. With a rotation including Sure Power for tough broadleaf weeds like ground ivy and wild violet, Millennium Ultra 2 to melt away unsightly weeds like Canada thistle, and SureGuard SC to keep dormant areas clean through the winter, superintendents can be well on their way to easily maintained naturalized areas.
