Gangster® Herbicide Program Update

September 19, 2014


WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Valent U.S.A. Corporation announced on September 8, 2014, the launch of Fierce® XLT Soybean Herbicide for growers seeking premium residual control of tough weeds and annual grasses. In order to best service the needs of new Fierce XLT customers, Valent will discontinue Gangster® Herbicide after the 2015 growing season, as growers will now have a new choice for long-lasting, broad spectrum weed control.

"As an organization, our aim is to provide growers with the most reliable herbicide solutions," said Gary Schaefer, senior manager, row crops for Valent. "Valent is committed to product innovation that best benefits growers and our channel partners with new solutions like Fierce XLT Herbicide."

Valent will continue its support and service of Gangster in the field as the product transitions out of partner inventories. Valent will also support Gangster sales in its marketing programs for distributors, retailers and growers through the 2015 marketing year, beginning October 1, 2014, and ending September 30, 2015. Those interested in more information are encouraged to contact their local Valent sales representative.
