The latest crop protection from Valent Pt 2

With today’s Fruit Grower report, I’m Bob Larson. If you don’t change over time, you’re left behind. This is something Valent isn’t about to let happen with a few new products that producers in Northwest may be using very soon.

Jesse Rosales from Valent started our conversation yesterday by talking about the two way bug spray, Senstar…

ROSALES… “And the other one which is quite exciting, particularly important in the North West, is a product by the name of Exalia. And, Excalia is based on a new technology, a new chemistry that Valent will distribute in the North and in the United States and which is called “Indoflen”.

These changes, says Rosales, will help growers with things like apple scab, powdery mildew and rust diseases in apples…

ROSALES… “Our introduction for foliar fungicide control is going to be with Excalia. And then, for other markets, we have a seed treatment that was also launched this year under the name Zeltera / Rice. And then, later, we will have other seed treatments, opportunities to come to the market. “

Rosales says these new products should give growers more exciting options…

ROSALES… “Really what Valent is focused on is innovation and value for growers so they can help improve plant performance, and these chemistries are really meant to be just that, to improve. the overall performance of plants with innovative approaches. “

Rosales says to contact your Valent representative to find out more about this new line of products for your orchard.
