About this Product

For growers who want a liquid fungicide-only seed treatment, Maxim D provides the solution

Maxim® D liquid seed treatment is ideal for seed-borne disease control, especially for growers who are looking for a fungicide-only solution and are looking to apply their Syngenta insecticide on the seed or in-furrow to provide early-season insect protection.

Product Benefits

  • Delivers two modes of action against silver scurf and Fusarium – even strains resistant to fludioxonil.
  • A fungicide-only liquid Seedcare™ option.

Packaging

One case contains 2 x  9.2 L jugs

NOTE:  Maxim D should be purchased in combination with Actara®, Minecto™ Duo or another registered Syngenta insecticide for use on the seed or in-furrow in potatoes.

Uses

For use on:

  • Potatoes

For management of:

         *Suppression at the low rate; control at the high rate.

Application Information

Use Rates

  • 65–130 mL per 100 kg of seed
  • Recommended rate is 65 mL/100 kg of seed
  • One jug of Maxim D applied at 65 mL/100 kg seed will treat 312 cwt
  • For control of fusarium and suppression of Black scurf*, stem and stolon canker (Rhizoctonia solani) use a rate of 65 mL per 100 kg of seed
  • For control of silver scurf and Black scurf*, stem and stolon canker (Rhizoctonia solani) use a rate of 130 mL per 100 kg of seed

Water Volume

  • Maxim D may be applied undiluted or as a water-based slurry.
  • Do not exceed a maximum slurry volume of 260 mL/100 kg seed.
  • When applying at rates lower than 130 mL of Maxim D/100 kg seed, add sufficient water to allow for a slurry volume of at least 130 mL/100 kg seed.

Application Method

Seed Treatment

Application Information

  • Cut seed is vulnerable to excess moisture. Too much moisture can induce seed decay. Maxim D has been designed to be delivered in very low volumes of liquid to ensure good coverage without increasing tuber decay.  Do not add excess water to the cut seed.
  • Apply only in areas with adequate ventilation or in areas that are equipped to remove mist or dust.
  • Calibrate the output to the actual flow rate.  If calibrated properly, there will be no liquid material dripping off of the roller table.
  • If the treated seed is to be stored or held, make sure that there is adequate cool air movement through the pile of cut seed potatoes at relative humidity of 85-90%. 
  • Cut and treated seed should not be piled above 1.8 m in height. 
  • Do not store treated seed for more than two weeks.
  • Treated seed should not be stored in trucks or boxes.
  • Best results are obtained if potatoes are planted immediately after Maxim D is applied to the seed. 
  • When treating cut seed, Maxim D can be followed with an inert dust to improve the conditions which lead to suberization.
  • After using Maxim D seed treatment for seed-borne disease control, follow-up with a Syngenta insecticide such as Actara® or Minecto™ Duo in-furrow to provide early-season insect protection.

Effects of Weather

  • If soil and weather conditions are ideal, potatoes can be planted immediately after Maxim D is applied to the seed. However, if conditions are cold and wet, wait to cut, treat and plant until conditions are favourable, or cut, treat and store.

Use Restrictions

  • When transporting treated seed, make sure the seed is covered.

Tank Mixes

  • Actara (for control of Colorado potato beetle, aphids and potato leafhopper)

Technical Information

Group 3 and Group 12 fungicides

Mode of Action

Maxim D contains the active ingredients fludioxonil (Group 12) and difenoconazole (Group 3) fungicides.

Resistance Management

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.
For further information or to report suspected resistance, contact company representatives at 1-87-SYNGENTA (1-877-964-3682) or at www.syngenta.ca.
