Benefits

  • Improved seed flow characteristics
  • Enhanced cosmetic attributes
  • Better plantability, especially in vacuum planters
  • Excellent chemical retention
  • Field and laboratory studies show safe to the seed.
  • In the conditioning plant, talc in the application process of Poncho® 1250 may not be necessary.

Plantability

Improved plantability with these new coating systems has also been shown in company trials. Poncho-treated seed with Precise Seed Finisher 1006 plants more accurately, even when tested under extreme conditions (high heat and humidity) and with no planter box talc or graphite. Although tested in this manner, talc or graphite is typically recommended by the equipment manufacturers.

Plantability trials conducted with finger pickup also indicate results that compare more closely to fungicide-only treated seed. The binding property of both new film coatings helps keep the active ingredient on the seed.

Product Usage


Poncho 250

Apply 2.0 fl oz of Precise Seed Finisher 1006 per 100 lbs of seed. Standard treating equipment can be utilized. Product may be mixed in a slurry or applied “neat” through a static mixer.

Poncho 500

Apply 4.0 fl oz of Precise Seed Finisher 1006 per 100 lbs of seed. Standard treating equipment can be utilized. Product may be mixed in a slurry or applied “neat” through a static mixer.

Poncho 1250

For talc-less system, apply 0.6 fl oz of Precise Seed Finisher 1007 with the fungicide and Poncho in the batch treater. Towards the end of the treating cycle, as an overcoat, apply 5.0 fl oz of Precise Seed Finisher 1006 instead of dry talc. A dedicated supply tank will need to be in place for the Precise Seed Finisher 1006.

Poncho 250, Poncho 500 and Poncho 1250 are the 0.25 mg AI/kernel, 0.50 mg AI/kernel and 1.25 mg AI/kernel application rates (respectively) of Poncho 600 seed-applied insecticide.
