Poncho/VOTiVO gets EPA registration for cotton

Poncho/VOTiVO seed treatment from Bayer CropScience has received registration from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for use on cotton.

"We are extremely pleased to bring Poncho/VOTiVO to cotton growers in the market," said Poncho/VOTiVO cotton product manager Paul Hewitt. "After successfully introducing Poncho/VOTiVO on corn last Fall, this innovative product will be available to help protect cotton and soybean plants during the 2012 planting season."

Poncho/VOTiVO protects against damage from a broad range of nematode species, including reniform and root-knot. It provides a new biological mode of action that introduces revolutionary living-barrier science.

To control early season insect pests such as thrips, aphids and others, Poncho/VOTiVO should be paired with additional seed-applied insecticides (Gaucho or Aeris) from Bayer CropScience.

"Employing a new biological mode of action with a unique bacteria strain that lives and grows with young roots, Poncho/VOTiVO creates a living barrier that grows with and protects early season seedlings and roots," explained product development manager Louis Holloway. "The result means higher cotton yields through a healthier root system and a more vigorous and uniform crop."

According to the Cotton Disease Loss Estimate Committee, nematodes remain a major yield-reducing pest of cotton with more than 500,000 bales of yield potential lost to nematode damage in 2009. Poncho/VOTiVO protects against multiple types of nematodes, making it the perfect partner for Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs.

"Poncho/VOTiVO continues to be a part of an ever-growing and innovative seed treatment portfolio from Bayer CropScience," Hewitt said. "We are proud to serve as the industry leader in the development of seed treatment innovations for growers of cotton, corn and soybeans."
