New reactors, new packaging lines, and new office space will make it an even more efficient plant for our high-volume herbicides.

Diversity and Inclusion
Women at Nufarm
Nufarm’s focus on gender diversity is designed to empower all employees by actively addressing the barriers to equality and creating a level playing field and inclusive culture for both men and women.
To this end, we conducted a gender pay analysis was as part of our annual salary and short-term incentive review. The findings showed that most regions' gender pay parity slightly favored female remuneration outcomes for both salary and incentive. We are focused on improving female representation across all areas of the business and the Board considers gender diversity an important factor in its succession planning. Our goal across the Board and senior leadership is to have not less than 30 percent of people of each gender by 2022
