October 17, 2012

WALNUT CREEK, Calif.—Lawn care operators (LCOs) and arborists looking to get a jump on next year and maximize their maintenance budgets can do both with the 2013 Lawn Care Operator Early Order Program from Valent Professional Products.

From Oct. 1, 2012, to March 15, 2013, LCO applicators and arborists can enjoy major savings when choosing from Valent Professional Products’ outstanding selection of pest management products for landscape, tree care and lawn professionals—including Arena® Insecticide, Safari® Insecticide, SureGuard® Herbicide, Tourney® Fungicide and more.

“Lawn care operators and arborists are already planning for 2013, and we understand that budgetary concerns will play a major part in the decision-making process,” said Mike Riffle, manager of national sales and market development for Valent Professional Products. “The Early Order Program provides LCOs and arborists with a value-added incentive—a great value for quality, best-in-class solutions that will contribute to healthy and high-quality lawns, trees and landscapes, not to mention happy customers.”

Valent Professional Products offers LCOs and arborists a wide variety of products to help protect plants, lawns, trees, shrubs and landscapes from pests, weeds 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 in landscaped and bareground areas and controls Poa annua all winter long when applied to dormant Bermudagrass.

Tourney, meanwhile, controls a broad spectrum of diseases affecting lawns and woody ornamental plants in landscape settings, including anthracnose, apple scab, leaf spots, powdery mildew and rusts.  

And Safari is a super-systemic insecticide that provides quick uptake and knockdown of a broad spectrum of tough and invasive insects, including emerald ash borer, Q- and B-biotype whitefly, armored and soft scale, mealybug, leafminer and many more

The following products are also included in Early Order Program reward offers: BroadStar Herbicide, DiPel® PRO DF Biological Insecticide, Distance® Fire Ant Bait, Distance Insect Growth Regulator, Envoy Plus® Herbicide, ProGibb® T&O Plant Growth Regulator, Tame® Insecticide and TetraSan® Miticide.
