Poncho® Votivo® 2.0 Seed Treatment System

Poncho Votivo 2.0 seed treatment system is the next generation in a family of products with a strong legacy of protecting your corn. In addition to protecting the young seedlings when they're most vulnerable, a second biological improves the health of the soil directly around the roots to help increase productivity. 

Benefits of Poncho® Votivo® 2.0 Seed Treatment System

  • A 3.8 bu/A average yield increase over Poncho Votivo seed treatment
  • Improved soil health from new biological that increases availability of nutrients in the soil
  • Immediate protection against a wide range of insects from the moment the seed is planted
  • Living barrier protects against plant pathogenic nematodes

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 system 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 system 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 system 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 system has shown an average yield increase of 3.8 bu/A over Poncho Votivo seed treatment.
