Group 3 and Group 12 fungicides
Mode of Action
Maxim D contains the active ingredients fludioxonil (Group 12) and difenoconazole (Group 3) fungicides.
To delay fungicide resistance:
Where possible rotate the use of MAXIM D or other Group 3 or 12 fungicides with different groups that control the same pathogens.
In order to minimize the potential for the development of resistance among the labeled disease organisms do not use MAXIM D, MAXIM Liquid PSP or MAXIM PSP in any two consecutive seed generations.
Use tank mixtures with fungicides from a different group when such use is permitted. Fungicide use should be based on an IPM program that includes scouting, historical information related to pesticide use and crop rotation and considers cultural, biological and other chemical control practices. Implement an integrated disease management program that helps to maintain lower inoculum levels, thereby reducing the probability for the development of resistant Fusarium spp. isolates. This includes planting disease free tubers, not growing potatoes in the same field two years in a row and practising good hygiene in the storage bins.
Monitor treated fungal populations for resistance development.
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 specific crops and pathogens.
