With today's Fruit Grower Report, I'm Bob Larson. We talked yesterday about the "Bud to Box" program Valent USA and Pace International have to help tree fruit at every step of production.

Pace Vice President Rodrigo Cifuentes says integrations is the key to success ...

CIFUENTES ... "A lot of the post-harvest qualities they find in the field. So, a lot of the products that Valent USA sells, whether they're insecticides or PGRs, to effect post-harvest qualities so we're in a unique position to integrate what is done pre-harvest, also with the post-harvest products to maximize the quality of the fruit."

Valent's Mark Mason says these are exciting times ...

MASON ... "Yes, absolutely! We are just at the beginning of creating these solutions as we just begin to integrate the whole concept, but it is exciting to be able to impact that quality and the customers all the way through to help them be successful."

Cifuentes says best of all, it's sustainable ...

CIFUENTES ... "Valent and Pace have a unique portfolio of sustainable solutions. So, it's one of the concepts that we've been working as a group of companies, of bringing up and creating more awareness of all the sustainable solutions that we have both pre and post-harvest which no other company has."

And, Cifuentes says, it's just the beginning ...

CIFUENTES ... "No, we'll continue to develop this program to bring it to more customers. We're thinking of new things we want to introduce in the future to have more people be able to use the products from both Valent and Pace."
