Just in time for spring and another new season on the farm, Valent USA is launching a campaign highlighting the “relentlessness” of their herbicide products, including Valor® Herbicide, Valor XLT Soybean Herbicide, Fierce® Herbicide and Fierce XLT Soybean Herbicide. To celebrate this relentless spirit, Valent USA is hosting a contest aimed at sharing farmers’ stories and giving back!
At the end of National Ag Week, which runs through March 21, Valent USA will choose 5 national winners who best exemplify the relentless spirit. Valent USA will donate $1,000 to the winners’ favorite local 501(c)(3) charity, as well as $500 grant to a local 501(c)(3) given in each winners’ respective local retailer’s name.
The contest — “Relentless as You” — seeks to showcase stories of agriculture that highlights a farmer’s resiliency. In agriculture, we face all sorts of obstacles: bad weather, tough markets, harsh conditions, and fatigue (just to name a few!). Even when it seems like the world is against us, we keep going. We continue to push on and persevere and keep doing what we do! And good thing we embrace that “relentless” attitude because we’re charged with feeding the world!
To go along with the contest, Valent USA wants farmers to know that its herbicide products show a relentless spirit too. These products fight tough weeds before they emerge, ultimately providing clean fields which lead to healthy crops. To learn more about the campaign and products, click here.
According to Meg Brodman, Senior Manager, of Valent USA:
We all know a grower who embodies the strength, determination and relentlessness it takes to deliver food and fiber to our communities, and this contest – and our new Relentless campaign – recognizes these hard-working growers and spotlights their personal stories, sacrifices and achievements. RelentlessAsYou.com/contest honors growers for their hard work by showcasing the personal stories of growers and celebrating the relentless spirit of the American farmer today.
To enter, farmers need to head here and submit a 100-word description of their relentless spirit of dedication and determination to succeed. Put together a picture or video to go along with the brief essay.
Is your favorite farmer too humble or shy to talk about that relentless spirit? No problem! Friends, family, and neighbors of farmers – you can also nominate a farmer that you think embodies this relentless spirit!
