Agrimarketing : Crop Life America
Valent U.S.A. Corporation Valent Celebrates CropLife America's 75 Years of Industry Service Congratulations to CropLife America and its 75 years of service to the crop protection industry. The people at Valent U.S.A. Corporation are proud of our long association with CropLife America and the efforts made to ensure a sound future on behalf of our industry.

Valent is one of the few crop protection firms today with a strong innovation culture and new product focus. Our researchers work closely with university experts to anticipate and address such emerging problems as resistant weeds, insects, mites and diseases. And we are committed to sustaining the health and future of our industry through stewardship in all aspects of our business.
