Valent now offers liquid formulation herbicide

Published:

Still mulling over your herbicide program for 2017? You may want to take a look at a new liquid formulation herbicide just released from Valent.

Valor EZ; a liquid formulation of the company’s leading herbicide, Valor, is a residual herbicide that is geared for all stages of the application process. With easy-to-mix, in-tank suspension properties, Valor EZ  also partners with the Roundup Ready Xtend Crop System.

“The liquid formulation of Valor EZ makes the mixing process easier and more effective for growers and applicators by eliminating the pre-slurry step,” said Dr. John Pawlak, senior product development manager at Valent. “Better mixing will ensure a more even application, and less unmixed material in the spray equipment.”

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

Valent is also offering increased grower $6 per acre incentive 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. Financing options will also 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.
