Valent U.S.A. Corporation and Monsanto Company have strengthened their partnership in the Roundup Rewards® program with updated incentives to help farmers protect their herbicide investment in 2010.
The companies have joined forces on two programs: the Volunteer Roundup Ready® Corn 2 Cost-Share Allowance and the START CLEAN, STAY CLEAN.™ Assurance Plan.
Enhanced for 2010, farmers who use Valent’s Select Max® Herbicide with Inside Technology™ to help control volunteer Roundup Ready Corn 2 in Roundup Ready soybeans, cotton or sugarbeets may now receive up to $4 per acre. Additionally, for farmers fighting weeds in Roundup Ready soybeans with Valor®, Valor XLT or Gangster® residual herbicides and Roundup WeatherMAX® herbicide, the companies will offer up to $7 per acre if a field requires a second in-crop treatment in a season.
