Product Information

Introducing Poncho®/VOTiVO® 2.0* - the next generation of America’s most trusted seed treatment for corn

Poncho®/VOTiVO® 2.0 provides the same trusted protection against insects and nematodes, with the addition of a new, revolutionary biological that enhances the microbial activity around the plant root. The result is more food for native soil microbes, which leads to greater nutrient availability and uptake by the growing plant.

Graphic design in soil shows equation: Trusted insect and nematode protection + Increased microbial activity = Higher yield potential

This revolutionary biological was developed from the proprietary FLEXIBOOST® technology platform. It allows for the production and delivery of stabilized compounds into environments that have otherwise unfavorable conditions for survival.

The result is healthier soil, healthier plants and higher yield potential.
