Product Information
Poncho®/VOTiVO® seed treatment protects young plants from pests during critical early development stages, leading to healthier root development and stronger stands. Applied directly to the seed, Poncho/VOTiVO protects the whole plant, above and below ground, preventing damage to early-season seedlings and roots before pests can strike.

Poncho/VOTiVO employs a biological mode of action with a unique bacteria strain that lives and grows with young roots, creating a living barrier that prevents nematodes from causing damage. It also has a systemic agent that’s absorbed by new roots immediately, providing control of many critical early-season insect pests. This dual protection results in healthier plant establishment and a more uniform crop, positively impacting yields.

In more than 150 replicated soybean field trials in 2011 and 2012, Poncho/VOTiVO provided an average yield advantage of 1.5 to 2.5 bushels per acre. From seed germination to plant establishment, Poncho/VOTiVO secures a foundation for the best yields.
