Valor EZ Herbicide Available

sclerotinia-story-1-17Valent U.S.A. Corporation recently announced the release of Valor EZ; a liquid formulation of the company’s leading herbicide, Valor. Named Valor EZ Herbicide for its easy-to-mix, in-tank suspension properties, Valor EZ is an ideal residual partner for the Roundup Ready Xtend Crop System.

With its easy mixing and loading and great suspensibility, Valor EZ helps provide growers a residual herbicide that is easy to use at all stages of the application process.

Available for the 2017 growing season for use on soybeans and cotton, Valor EZ provides residual protection against a broad spectrum of weeds, including tough-to-control waterhemp and Palmer amaranth, for four to six weeks.

And for the first time ever, Valent will offer increased grower incentives on the Valor EZ formulation for the 2017 growing season when used in next generation seed systems such as the Roundup Ready Xtend Crop System and with PhytoGen Enlist varieties. Valent is offering a $6 per-acre incentive on qualified purchases. Additionally, financing options will be available through John Deere Financial.

To protect soybeans and cotton during the most crucial stages of development and to manage weed resistance, Valent recommends proactive herbicide stewardship, including using multiple effective modes of action, crop rotation and applications at full labeled rates.
