Growers who use Poncho 500 seed-applied insecticide may be eligible to earn up to $300 from Bayer CropScience in 2009 with the Try 10 on Us program.

Poncho 500 controls wireworms, black cutworms and other insects in corn.

“With the higher cost of seed, it pays more than ever to invest in a seed treatment,” says Kerry Grossweiler, Bayer CropScience product manager for seed treatments. “Growers who use Poncho 500 can see an average 10 bushel-per-acre increase in their yields over the fungicide control.”

The Try 10 on Us program makes available to growers who purchase 100 or more bags of Poncho 500-treated seeds a $300 rebate. A $150 rebate is available to those growers who purchase 50 to 99 bags of Poncho 500-treated seed.

Seed invoices must be dated between Aug. 1, 2008, and May 31, 2009.

For more information on this rebate program or to request a claim form, growers are encouraged to contact their seed dealers or call the Bayer CropScience Customer Interaction Center at (877) 976-8286.
