Seed company Monsanto Company (NYSE:MON) stated on Monday that it has expended its partnership with Valent USA LLC in aid of soybean, corn and cotton growers under the 2018 Roundup Ready PLUS Crop Management Solutions platform.

Under the 2018 programme, Valent will offer Valor and Fierce brands under the exclusive preemergence PPO residual herbicides. The new products will include solutions for control of tough weeds, the new Mauler Herbicide and a line extension of the longest lasting residual, Fierce, with Fierce MTZ Co-Pack.

In conjunction, Valor SX Herbicide will again be part of the programme 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 programme.

As part of the 2018 programme, the growers will have access to Valent's Asana XL Insecticide, an industry leader for broad spectrum foliar insect control as well as Zeal SC, a proven residual miticide. The broader range of insecticide solutions will help growers maximize yields and protect their acres throughout the growing season.

The full portfolio of Valent soybean, corn or cotton crop protection products to 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 as well as Zeal SC.
