Nufarm acquires PGR from BASF

Nufarm logoNufarm Americas Inc. has acquired Pentia plant growth regulator from BASF.

The product offers a track record of maximizing cotton yields with improved plant uptake, rainfastness, height management, boll retention, earliness and yield potential, according to a news release.

Pentia contains the active ingredient mepiquat pentaborate.

“The faster absorption of Pentia versus traditional, unenhanced mepiquat has benefited cotton growers for several years,” Chris Bowley, Nufarm customer and brand marketing manager, said in the release. “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.”
