Monsanto, Valent Expand Roundup Ready PLUS Partnership
Monsanto and Valent U.S.A. are expanding their partnership in the 2018 Roundup Ready PLUS Crop Management Solutions platform.
Valent will offer its Valor and Fierce brands as the exclusive preemergence PPO residual herbicides in the program, and new products such as Mauler Herbicide and Fierce MTZ Co-Pack will be added for control of tough weeds.
Valor SX Herbicide will again be part of the program for 2018, while Rowel Herbicide and Rowel FX Herbicide will be phased out to streamline product offerings.
Valent’s line of postemergence herbicides – including Cobra and Select Max Herbicide with Inside Technology – will remain in the program.
Growers will also have access to Valent’s latest insecticide solutions in the 2018 program, including Asana XL Insecticide for broad spectrum foliar insect control, and Zeal SC, a proven residual miticide.
“We’re very excited about our partnership with Valent,” said Scott Burchette, Monsanto North America Crop Protection Systems Lead. “The goal of Roundup Ready PLUS Crop Management Solutions is all about partnering with industry-leading suppliers to deliver simple and effective options to combat herbicide-resistant weeds. Together with Valent, we are creating even more value through expanding product offerings, while creating a better experience for retailers and growers alike.”
“Valent looks forward to expanding our collaboration with Monsanto and Roundup Ready PLUS for the 2018 growing season and beyond,” said Trey Soud, director of row crops for Valent U.S.A. “Growers trust the Fierce and Valor brands to protect their fields against a broad spectrum of weeds, and with the addition of Zeal SC and Asana XL, we are able to uphold our commitment to creating long-term value for growers through integrated agrosolutions.”
The full portfolio of Valent cotton, soybean or corn crop protection products that will be endorsed in the 2018 Roundup Ready PLUS platform include Valor EZ, Valor XLT, Valor SX, Fierce, Fierce XLT, Fierce MTZ Co-Pack, Mauler, Chateau Herbicide, Cobra, Select Max, Asana XL and Zeal SC.
