Use Restrictions

  • Fortenza contains no colourant. An appropriate colourant must be added when this product is applied.
  • Do not apply any subsequent application of a Group 28 Insecticide (for example, in-furrow, soil or foliar application) following Fortenza seed treatment.
    • All bags containing treated seed for sale or use in Canada must be labelled or tagged as follows:  These seeds have been treated with the insecticide cyantraniliprole and fludioxonil, metalaxyl-M and S-isomer, azoxystrobin and thiabendazole fungicides.  When handling and planting treated seed, workers must wear a long sleeved shirt and long pants, chemical-resistant gloves, and work boots. For good hygiene practice, it is also recommended that a NIOSH-approved dust mask be worn during all job activities.  Plant treated seed only with closed cab planting equipment. Keep out of reach of children and domestic animals.  Do not use for food, feed or oil processing.  Store away from food and feed. Do not graze corn or cut for forage within 30 days of planting.  Toxic to bees. Follow best management practices to help minimize dust exposure to pollinators during planting of treated seed; refer to the complete guidance “Pollinator Protection: reducing risk from treated seed” on the Health Canada website (www.healthcanada.gc.ca/pollinators).

Tank Mixes

For disease control, Fortenza Maxim Quattro can be tank mixed with Apron® XL LS, and Cruiser® 5FS and/or Vibrance® 500FS seed treatment in commercial seed treatment facilities. Read the label directions for each product and follow the most restrictive label precautions and limitations.

Technical Information

Chemistry Group

Groups 1, 4, 11 and 12 fungicides; Group 28 insecticide

Cyantraniliprole - Group 28 insecticide – Diamides – affects insect nerve and muscle system
Metalaxyl m = Group 4 = phenylamide – targets RNA polymerase I
Fludioxonil = Group 12 = phenylpyrroles – affects signal transduction
Azoxystrobin = Group 11 = Quinone outside Inhibitors – Affects cellular respiration
Thiabendazole = Group 1 = Methyl Benzimidazole Carbamates – Affects mitosis

Resistance Management

For resistance management, please note that Fortenza Maxim Quattro contains a Group 28 insecticide and Groups 1, 4, 11 and 12 fungicides.

Any insect population may contain individuals naturally resistant to Fortenza and other Group 28 insecticides. The resistant individuals may dominate the insect population if this group of insecticides is used repeatedly in the same field. Other resistance mechanisms that are not linked to site of action but are specific for individual chemicals, such as enhanced metabolism, may also exist. Because resistance development cannot be predicted, the use of this product should conform to sound resistance management strategies established for the crop and use area.

Where possible, rotate the use of FORTENZA or other Group 28 insecticides with different groups that control the same pests in a field.  Where possible rotate the use of MAXIM QUATTRO Seed Treatment or other Group 1, 4, 11 or 12 fungicides with different groups that control the same pathogens.

Any fungal population may contain individuals naturally resistant to MAXIM QUATTRO Seed Treatment and other Group 1, 4, 11 or 12 fungicides.  A gradual or total loss of pest control may occur over time if these fungicides are used repeatedly in the same fields.  Other resistance mechanisms that are not linked to site of action but specific for individual chemicals, such as enhanced metabolism, may also exist. 

Use tank mixtures with miticides/insecticides/fungicides from a different group when such use is permitted.

Insecticide and fungicide use should be based on an IPM program that includes scouting, record keeping, and considers cultural, biological and other chemical control practices.

Monitor treated pest populations for resistance development. If insect resistance is suspected, do not reapply FORTENZA or other Group 28 insecticides.  If disease continues to progress after treatment with this product, do not increase the use rate.  Discontinue use of this product, and switch to another fungicide with a different target site of action, if available.

Contact your local extension specialist or certified crop advisors for any additional pesticide resistance-management and/or IPM recommendations for the specific site and pest problems in your area.
