Bayer/Monsanto seed treatment deal

Bayer CropScience has agreed to supply its seed treatment, Poncho Votivo, to Monsanto for use in its Acceleron seed treatment range for soybeans in the US. Poncho Votivo combines the insecticide, clothianidin, and a Bacillus firmus-based bionematicide. The product controls a range of insect pests, including white grubs, seed corn maggots ( Delia platura) and soybean aphids ( Aphis glycines), as well as soybean cyst nematodes ( Heterodera glycines), the companies point out. Bayer and Monsanto have a similar deal over Poncho Votivo for maize ( Agrow No 599, p 2).
