Monsanto, Valent Expand Partnership in Roundup Ready PLUS Crop Management Solutions

Monsanto Co. and Valent U.S.A. LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sumitomo Chemical Co., Ltd., have announced today expanded partnership in the 2018 Roundup Ready PLUS Crop Management Solutions platform.

Several key changes provide soybean, corn and cotton growers with the most effective solutions to be more productive. Valent will offer Valor and Fierce brands as the exclusive preemergence PPO residual herbicides in the program. In addition, new products will be added to the program, including solutions for control of tough weeds, such as new Mauler Herbicide and a line extension of the longest lasting residual, Fierce, with Fierce MTZ Co-Pack. Valor SX Herbicide will again be part of the program for 2018. 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.

In addition, growers will have access to the latest insecticide solutions from Valent in the 2018 program. Asana XL Insecticide, an industry leader for broad spectrum foliar insect control and Zeal SC, a proven residual miticide, will both be offered in the 2018 program. Valent and Monsanto are pleased to offer a broader range of insecticide solutions that will help growers maximize yields and protect their acres throughout the growing season.

“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. LLC. “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 soybean, corn or cotton 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.
