Monsanto Co.’s Roundup Rewards Program has a new herbicide element.
Valent U.S.A. Corp’s fast-acting herbicide — Select Max with Inside Technology – will included in the 2008 program for volunteer Roundup Ready Corn 2 control in soybeans and cotton.
The Volunteer Roundup Ready Corn 2 Cost-Share Allowance element of the Roundup Rewards program will be expanded to include cotton in addition to soybeans.
“The Roundup Rewards Program offers
Roundup Ready farmers protection of their investment when they use Select Max to control volunteer Roundup Ready corn,” says Jamie Nielson, Select Max brand manager for Valent.
Farmers who use Select Max within the Roundup Rewards recommendations will get an economic solution with the best performance for the farm. The 2008 Volunteer Roundup Ready Corn 2 Cost-Share Allowance will be structured as follows:
|Cost-Share Allowance toward Select Max purchase||Roundup WeatherMax||Roundup PowerMAX|
|If you choose to use the Roundup Ready RATE of a Monsanto residual corn herbicide and Roundup agricultural herbicide brands||$3.90/A||$2.60/A|
|If you choose to use Roundup agricultural herbicide brands only||$2.60/A||$1.30/A|
“Select Max is a proven tank mix partner with Roundup WeatherMAX or Roundup PowerMAX brands,” Nielson says. “In addition to its tank mix flexibility, studies show Select Max delivers fast and complete kill of volunteer corn and grasses and offers a wide application window.”
