First-half net profit for Nufarm rose to $A18.8 million compared with $A8.4 million in the same six months a year earlier.

The agricultural chemicals company said underlying operating profit for the six months to January was up 20 percent because of strong growth in South America and Brazil in particular.

The company said this more than offset the impact of a continuing drought conditions in Australia and lower earnings from both North America and Europe.
