About Us

Who we are

“Always here to help you grow.”

We know that growing is about more than just crops and cultivation. It’s about sunshine and rain, early mornings and hard work. It can be frustratingly unpredictable, but also wonderfully uplifting. More than anything, it’s about people.  

Nufarm is the dependable partner behind thousands of agricultural success stories. Every day, growers around the world turn to our products and our people to help with the challenges of fighting disease, weeds and pests, and to increase crop yields.  

It starts in the lab. And it continues through our commitment to constant improvement, in the efficiency, safety and simplicity of our products.  

But our most important work is done by our people on the ground – on farms, vineyards and golf courses, and with wholesalers and industry partners around the world.  

It’s there that we provide the hands-on support and one-on-one guidance that gives our customers the confidence that they’ll be getting the right product for the job. That it’ll work as it’s supposed to. That they’ll have it when they need it. And that there’ll be someone to talk it through when they need a helping hand.  

It’s a more personal approach that’s been at the heart of our business for 100 years. Through droughts, floods, market downturns and changing environments.  

And it’s why more and more people are depending on us to help them grow.
