Poncho Beta provides convenient, on-the-seed pest protection from injury caused by leafhoppers, root maggots, flea beetles, wireworms, black cutworms, springtail, black bean aphids and leaf miners. It is applied on the seed by sugarbeet seed companies and is expected to be available on most brands and varieties of sugarbeet seed.
