Poncho

Poncho - Getting the most out of every hectare.

Poncho is a proven, highly effective seed treatment insecticide providing broad spectrum protection against attack by above and below ground pests, and is recommended for wheat, maize, forage brassicas and grass seed crops.

Poncho protects seeds from the time of sowing, leading to better crop emergence and helping maximise production.

Poncho is released from the seed immediately after sowing, forming a protective halo around the seed, that is then taken up from the halo as the seed germinates, and is transported in the sap-flow throughout the plant to deliver root to tip protection.

Poncho acts as a contact poison, stomach poison, anti-feedant and repellant against Argentine stem weevil, Grass grub and Black beetle.
