Valent USA presented its Valor Award at the Southeast Peanut Growers Conference, recognizing an individual or group that has made significant contributions to the peanut industry.
This year’s recipient is the American Peanut Shellers, an association that is celebrating 100 years of history in 2019.
“They’ve been a partner with so many different groups and they’ve been creative and innovative in bringing new technology so it was really an honor to be able to present this to them as they celebrate their 100 years of service,” says John Altom, Valent Sales Representative.
Altom says Valor continues to be a key product for Valent as it is effective in fighting Palmer amaranth in peanuts. The company has also introduced MycoApply EndoPrime and has plans for a new fungicide to fight white mold.
