WALNUT CREEK, Calif., Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Valent U.S.A. Corporation announced today the release of Valor ® EZ; a liquid formulation of the company's leading herbicide, Valor. Named Valor EZ Herbicide 1 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. "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, ValorEZ 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 2. "An application of an effective preemergence herbicide, like Valor EZ, lays a strong residual foundation in a next generation soybean or cotton system," said Eric Miller, marketing manager with Valent. " Valor EZ offers soybean and cotton growers a win-win solution by maximizing the effectiveness of their crop management systems, while still enabling them to effectively manage their finances through Valent's expanded grower programs." 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.
