EPA approves Poncho/Votivo seed treatment for use in corn

EPA approves Poncho/Votivo seed treatment for use in corn

Bayer CropScience received EPA approval for its new Poncho/Votivo seed treatment for use in corn. The Poncho/Votivo product combines corn seed-applied insecticide with a new living-barrier approach to nematode protection. It features the 500 rate of Poncho 600 seed-applied insecticide, which provides growers with increased control of wireworms, black cutworms, white grubs and other early season insect pests.

Poncho/Votivo includes a specific bacteria strain that colonizes corn roots upon germination and creates a biological barrier of protection that nematodes can’t break through.

According to Bayer, field trials show Poncho/Votivo averages a 6- to 8-bu./acre yield gain over Poncho 250.
