FirstPick® - Nufarm US


Nufarm FirstPick cotton harvest aid provides the quickest, most consistent boll opening of any ethephon product. Also, FirstPick is 100 percent water-soluble, so it mixes, sprays and washes off equipment cleanly and easily. Apply FirstPick when sufficient mature, unopened bolls have developed to provide the desired cotton yield, which is approximately 65 percent open in most cases. For optimum defoliation and/or regrowth inhibition FirstPick should be applied in combination with an approved tank-mix partner such as Nufarm FreeFall SC.
