New Products for 2015


ArborMectin is a 4% emamectin benzoate tree injected insecticide for two year control of key pests such as emerald ash borer, caterpillars, and other wood boring insects. ArborMectin can be applied through refillable micro-injection systems including the iQ Tree Infuser, Q-connect, Q-gun, and Arborjet® injection systems. EPA Signal Word: Caution


Trimtect is a spray-on shrub growth regulator that will reduce the regrowth of trimmed shrubs and hedges by 30 – 70% over a season, allowing your crews to spend less time on high maintenance sites and more time on more profitable ones.

Whether you are trimming for a formal appearance or a more natural shape, Trimtect will maintain your desired look for at least an entire season.

Reduce retrimming
• Treated plants require less pruning and will exhibit a more compact growth habit.

Reduce labor costs
• Fewer trips to the site and less debris to dispose of

Easy to apply
• Foliar spray applications provide more consistent results than granular applications
• Eliminates the hassle of removing mulch and landscape fabric underneath the plants

Better appearing plants
• Treated plants have darker green foliage that won’t ‘thin-out& in the middle
• Will not cause a yellowing (chlorosis) of new growth associated with other growth regulator products

Post-Emergent Control of Grassy and Broadleaf Weeds.

Introducing Last Call™, a Nufarm exclusive, premium selective herbicide for cool-season turf weed management. This proprietary formulation of fenoxaprop, fluroxypyr and dicamba provides strong control of crabgrass, particularly in the mid-tiller stage of growth that quinclorac-based herbicides struggle with. Last Call also controls a number of broadleaf weeds including dandelion, clover and lespedeza, and it can also be used for the removal of bermudagrass from cool-season turf. Last Call can be applied to all managed turf areas including golf fairways and rough, residential and commercial lawns, sport fields and similar areas.
