The ArgoNeuT Collaboration reports the first measurement of neutral current π0 production in νμ-argon and ν-μ-argon scattering. This measurement was performed using the ArgoNeuT liquid argon time projection chamber deployed at Fermilab's NuMI neutrino beam with an exposure corresponding to 1.2×1020 protons-on-target from the Fermilab main injector and a mean energy for νμ of 9.6 GeV and for ν-μ of 3.6 GeV. We compare the measured cross section and kinematic distributions to predictions from the GENIE and NuWro neutrino interaction event generators.
