Meet Poncho 250

Nurturing your corn crop from the ground up is what you do best. To succeed, you need superior control of all seven major early season corn insect pests — all the way up to the five-leaf stage. Poncho 250 can give you corn crops with more vigour, a more even stand, greener plants and a higher return on your investment.

Covering both the root system and above ground growth, only Poncho provides systemic protection of both the seed and seedling.
