Product Information

Poncho®/VOTiVO®, America’s #1 seed treatment for corn, 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. Compared to standard fungicide systems, Poncho/VOTiVO results in an average yield advantage of 10 bu./A.

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 861 corn field trials conducted between 2007 and 2016, across a wide geography, Poncho/VOTiVO resulted in an average yield advantage of 5.3 Bu./A., when compared to Poncho 250.
