Use & Mixing

The instructions for use and mixing described below are from the Environmental Protection Agency approved Federal Label. Please click on 'Labels / MSDS' in the left hand navigation for special or state label instructions. Always read and follow label instructions.


MIXING INSTRUCTIONS- When applied with seed treatment application equipment designed to treat seed utilizing a treatment slurry mixture, add approximately 1/2 to 2/3 of the required water to the treatment slurry tank followed by the accompanying seed treatment products and PONCHO/VOTiVO.- The order of product addition is dependent on the accompanying seed treatment products and application equipment used.- Allow each slurry component to disperse completely prior to the next addition until a uniform suspension is obtained.- After all slurry components have been added and dispersed completely add the remaining 1/2 to 1/3 of required water for proper slurry volume and mix until uniform.- Do not store mixed slurries for greater than 72 hours.- Maintain adequate agitation until treatment slurry is applied.- For additional instructions for use, slurry component mixing order, and other application suggestions contact your Bayer CropScience representative.- Follow the most restrictive of the labeling limitations and precautions of all products used in mixtures.
Workers involved with treating the seed (e.g. connecting and disconnecting hoses and transfer pumps, mixing, equipment calibration, etc.) and others exposed to the concentrate, and cleaners/repairers of seed treatment equipment must wear a long-sleeve shirt and long pants, shoes plus socks, chemical resistant gloves made out of: barrier laminate, butyl rubber >= 14 mils, nitrile rubber >= 14 mils, neoprene rubber >= 14 mils, polyvinyl chloride >= 14 mils, or viton >= 14 mils and NIOSH approved particulate respirator (TC-84A) with any N, R, or P filter.Baggers, Bag sewers, Applicators and other handlers must wear:- Long-sleeve shirt- Long pants- Shoes plus socks- NIOSH approved particulate respirator (TC-84A) with any N, R, or P filter Respiratory protection is required for handlers and other workers who have repeated exposure to this product.
COMPATIBILITY TESTING AND TANK MIX PARTNERSIt is the pesticide user's responsibility to ensure that all products in the listedmixtures are registered for the intended use. Users must follow the most restrictivedirections and precautionary language of the products in the mixture.CompatibilityIt is essential that before using PONCHO/VOTiVO seed treatment in any tank mixture the compatibility of the mixture be established. Add PONCHO/VOTiVO at the labeled rate to a clean quart jar containing approximately one-half the amount of water intended for a final slurry application rate. Next, follow with all other tank mix components that will be used in the total slurry application. Add last the remaining balance of water. The total amount of volume is determined by the seed size and how much is necessary to ensure complete and uniform coverage and distribution on the seed, as well as the type of commercial seed treating application equipment that will be used. DO NOT USE MIXTURES THAT CURDLE, PRECIPITATE, OR GEL. USE TANK MIXTURES IMMEDIATELY AFTER MIXING WITH ADEQUATE AGITATION.
Always read and follow label instructions. Not all products are registered for use in every state. Please check with Bayer or your local Lead State Agency for product registration status. If you wish to find out if a product is registered in your state or for additional product information, send us an email or call 1-866-99-BAYER.
