    Poncho®/VOTiVO® 2.0

      Poncho/VOTiVO 2.0 seed treatment is a next-generation seed treatment system providing a lineupof technologies for your corn plants. It protects young seedlings when they are most vulnerable topests and helps corn plants thrive to their full genetic potential with an average yield increase of 3.8 bu/A over Poncho/VOTiVO seed treatment.

    Benefits of Poncho/VOTiVO 2.0
    Soil Health – New biologic bacterium enhances the microbial activity in the soil increasing the availability of nutrients for the plant
    Immediate Protection – Systemic agent protects valuable seed from the moment it’s planted against a wide range of insects
    Prevents Damage – Biological agent creates a living barrier against a broad spectrum of plant pathogenic nematodes
    Yield Potential – Healthier soil environment and increased nutrient availability leads to a healthier plant with higher yield potential

      Soil Health: The Next Frontier

      “Soil health” refers to the living nature of the soil. Soil must be balanced to create an ecosystem that sustains and nourishes plants. A successful crop is dependent on the soil quality in the field. With the addition of a revolutionary biological, Poncho/VOTiVO 2.0 seed treatment is unlike any other seed treatment. It enhances the microbial activity around the plant roots by providing a stabilized enzyme that results in more food for the native microbes. This leads to greater nutrient availability and uptake by the growing plant. Furthermore, the VOTiVO component promotes plant vigor that can result in larger and stronger roots. This enhanced early-season root growth provided by Poncho/VOTiVO 2.0 seed treatment will serve to further improve uptake of nutrients by the corn plant. The result is a healthier soil environment and increased nutrient availability, leading to a healthier plant with higher yield potential.

      Early-Season Protection for Higher Yield Potential
      Most of the corn plant’s yield is determined in the first 4 to 6 weeks of growth. Poncho/VOTiVO 2.0 seed treatment helps plants get off to a great start in that critical, early‑season growing period when plants are most vulnerable. In multiple years of testing, Poncho/VOTiVO 2.0 seed treatment has shown an average yield increase of 3.8 bu/A over Poncho/VOTiVO seed treatment.
