Poncho Line Punched Up

The Poncho insecticide family from Bayer CropScience has a new addition: Poncho 500 seed-applied insecticide.

Poncho 500 offers corn growers improved control of wireworm, black cutworm, and other insects. “Improved insect control contributes to higher yields, as compared to Poncho 250,” says Kerry Grossweiler, Bayer CropScience marketing product manager — seed treatments.

With more Poncho 500 active ingredient applied to the seed corn, growers gain improved protection against various insects.

Poncho 500 research results confirm favorable returns, as well. “With $4 corn, growers who use Poncho 500 can see an average 10 bushel-per-acre increase in their yields over the fungicide control, and that’s money in their pockets,” Grossweiler says.
