Bayer's Poncho/Votivo OK'd for US cotton
Bayer CropScience has received extended US approval for its combination seed treatment, Poncho/Votivo, for use on cotton. It combines the insecticide, clothianidin, with a Bacillus firmus-based bionematicide. The company plans to market the product for use on cotton and soybeans in 2012. Bayer received US approval for Poncho/Votivo on maize last year ( Agrow No 589, p 25) and introduced it in autumn.
