WALNUT CREEK, Calif.—Greenhouse and nursery growers looking to get a jump on next year and maximize their production budgets can do both with the 2013 Ornamental Early Order Program from Valent Professional Products.

From Oct. 1 to Dec. 7, 2012, greenhouse and nursery growers can enjoy major savings when choosing from Valent Professional Products’ outstanding selection of ornamental production solutions—including Adorn® Fungicide, Overture® Insecticide, Safari® Insecticide, Sumagic® Plant Growth Regulator, SureGuard® Herbicide, Tourney® Fungicide and more.

“Greenhouse and nursery growers 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 greenhouse and nursery growers with a value-added incentive—a great value for quality, best-in-class solutions that will contribute to healthy and high-quality plants.”

Valent Professional Products offers greenhouse and nursery growers a wide variety of products to help enhance production and protect plants, trees and shrubs from pests, weeds and diseases.

Safari, for instance, is a super-systemic insecticide with quick uptake and knockdown that controls a broad spectrum of ferocious and invasive pests, including Q- and B-biotype whitefly, mealybug, leafminer, fungus gnat, black vine weevil, glassy-winged sharpshooter, armored and soft scale and lacebug—pests that affect high-value greenhouse and nursery crops such as poinsettia and hibiscus.

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

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