Monsanto Company, Sumitomo Chemical Company, Ltd. (SCC), and SCC’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Valent U.S.A. Corporation, announced an agreement to extend their strategic partnership in Monsanto’s Roundup Ready PLUS® Crop Management Solutions platform for soybeans and cotton in the United States.
 
Monsanto’s Roundup Ready PLUS Crop Management Solutions platform empowers farmers to maximize the performance of their Roundup Ready crops by developing effective, economical and sustainable approaches to controlling tough-to-manage and glyphosate -resistant weeds.  Farmers can earn cash-back incentives for using Roundup® brand agricultural herbicides with Roundup Ready PLUS endorsed products.  
 
Valent herbicides that will continue to be endorsed in Roundup Ready PLUS as a result of this extended partnership include preemergence herbicides, such as Valor®, Valor® XLT, Fierce®, Fierce XLT and Chateau®, as well as post herbicides, such as Cobra®, Phoenix® and Select Max®.
 
“The extension of this collaboration ensures that we will continue to deliver choice and long-term value for farmers through Roundup Ready PLUS by incorporating valuable weed management solutions provided in the portfolio of Valent products,” according to Chris Reat, Roundup Ready PLUS marketing manager at Monsanto. “By extending this strategic partnership with Valent, we are ensuring that soybean and cotton growers have the variety of effective options they need to proactively manage tough weeds and reduce the risk of developing weed resistance.”
 
“Valent and Monsanto have successfully partnered through Roundup Ready PLUS Crop Management to bring farmers the best-performing herbicide solutions to manage tough and resistant weeds,” said Gary Schaefer, senior manager of the row crop herbicide business at Valent U.S.A. Corporation. “We look forward to continuing this strong partnership with Monsanto and to bringing new weed management solutions to farmers through the Roundup Ready PLUS platform.”
