About Nufarm Ltd

With origins dating back more than 100 years, Nufarm Limited (ASX:NUF) is a global developer and manufacturer of crop protection solutions and seeds. Nufarm was founded in Melbourne in the 1960s. During the mid-1980’s, Nufarm joined forces with New Zealand-based Fernz Corporation which, originally known as The New Zealand Farmers’ Fertilizer Co, was established in 1916.

Throughout the 1990s and 2000s, Nufarm embarked on a significant growth period, expanding operations across the globe. The company now has manufacturing and marketing operations spanning Australia, New Zealand, the Unites States, Europe, and Asia.

According to Nufarm, part of the company’s success can be attributed to the fact that it works closely with farmers, advisors and distributors to “help farmers grow a better tomorrow”.

Nufarm’s products are designed to protect commercial crops from a variety of pests, weeds, and diseases, thereby maximising crop yields. The company prides itself on “turning world-leading scientific breakthroughs into local solutions”. Nufarm’s seeds business spans canola, sorghum and sunflower seeds.

In addition to product supplies, Nufarm delivers support and services designed to ensure its customers are able to source the right products for their requirements.

Nufarm first listed on the ASX in 1988. During the early 2000s, the Nufarm share price largely trended upwards to reach peaks of more than $17 in 2008. Since then, the Nufarm share price has delivered mixed performance and has trended lower over the last five years.
