Valent provides innovative crop protection tools, giving growers options for effective Integrated Pest Management Strategies that help to manage or prevent resistance.
The crop protection industry, including Valent, supports specialist technical groups which monitor and provide advice on resistance issues—the Resistance Action Committees (RACs) that deal with Fungicides, Herbicides and Insecticides (FRAC, HRAC and IRAC).
Further information on resistance management can be found at their respective websites:
