Syngenta Canada has received approval for registration of Cruiser Maxx Potato Extreme seed treatment in Canada. This all-in-one, liquid pre-mix delivers a concentrated formulation for convenient use and provides reliable protection from seed-borne diseases and early-season insects, Syngenta says.
“This new liquid pre-mix formulation provides growers with the ability to target both disease and insect pests with one product and the new concentrated formulation facilitates ease of mixing and measuring with fewer jugs to handle,” says Nathan Klages, product lead, Seedcare for Syngenta Canada
Cruiser Maxx Potato Extreme contains three active ingredients. Group 4 insecticide, thiamethoxam, works systemically to provide broad-spectrum performance. In the plant, it is translocated via the plant’s water-conducting system where it remains active for up to 100 days. Cruiser Maxx Potato Extreme also provides two modes of action against disease — an important feature now that some strains of seed-borne Fusarium are resistant to thiophanate-methyl and fludioxonil. The combination of Group 3 fungicide, difenoconazole, and Group 12 fungicide, fludioxonil, offer a broad spectrum of control, including protection from silver scurf, Rhizoctonia control, and a second mode of action against resistant Fusarium.
