Group 12 and M-3 fungicides
Mode of Action
Maxim MZ PSP is formulated with fludioxonil and mancozeb. Fludioxonil belongs to the class of chemical compounds called phenylpyrroles, naturally occurring angifungal compounds. Mancozeb belongs to the class of chemical compounds that have Multi-Site activity and are generally considered as a low risk group in terms of resistance development.
To delay fungicide resistance:
Where possible, rotate the use of MAXIM MZ PSP Fungicide or other Group 12 and Group M3 fungicides with different groups that control the same pathogens. 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.
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.
