October 3, 2011

WALNUT CREEK, Calif.—Ornamental growers, lawn care operators (LCOs) and arborists looking to get a jump on 2012 and get more mileage from their maintenance budgets can do both with the Early Order Program (EOP) from Valent Professional Products.

From Sept. 1-Dec. 9, 2011, ornamental growers, LCOs and arborists can enjoy major savings when choosing from Valent Professional Products’ outstanding selection of ornamental products—including Adorn® Fungicide; Arena® Insecticide; BroadStar Herbicide; Overture® Insecticide; Safari® Insecticide; SureGuard® Herbicide; Tourney® Fungicide; and more.

“Ornamental growers, LCOs and arborists are already planning for 2012, and we understand that budgets will again be tight in many cases,” said John Johnson, national sales manager for Valent Professional Products. “The Early Order Program provides growers, LCOs, arborists and other end users with a value-added incentive—a great value for quality, best-in-class solutions that will yield high-quality, healthy plants and happy customers.”

Valent Professional Products offers ornamental growers, LCOs and arborists a wide variety of products to help protect ornamental plants, lawns, trees, shrubs and landscapes from pests and diseases.

For instance, with the longest residual of any sprayable herbicide on the LCO market, SureGuard provides an exceptional value that helps reduce callbacks. An excellent tank mix partner for glyphosate or other postemergence herbicides, SureGuard offers excellent control of tough annual broadleaf and grassy weeds. Safari, meanwhile, is a highly systemic insecticide that provides quick uptake and knockdown of a broad spectrum of tough and invasive pests, including emerald ash borer (EAB), Q- and B-biotype whitefly, armored and soft scale, mealybug, leafminer and many more.

The following products are also included in EOP reward offers: DiPel® PRO DF Biological Insecticide; Distance® Fire Ant Bait; Distance Insect Growth Regulator; Envoy Plus® Herbicide; Fascination® Plant Growth Regulator; Gnatrol® WDG Biological Larvicide; ProGibb® T&O Plant Growth Regulator; Sumagic® Plant Growth Regulator; Tame® Insecticide; and TetraSan® Miticide.

EOP invoices must be submitted by Dec. 16, 2011. Rewards will be distributed in mid-February 2012. Products purchased before Sept. 1, 2011 or after Dec. 9, 2011 will not qualify for rewards.
