MAXIM® brands are optimized and developed for use in crops, such as maize, soybeans, cotton and potatoes.

Fludioxonil is the only molecule of this chemical class and is used as a seed treatment on various crops, such as maize (corn), soybean, potato or cotton. Fludioxonil is a contact fungicide that penetrates the seed surface and concentrates around the seed, thus providing a long-lasting protection zone around the young seedling. Its excellent crop safety combined with exceptional activity at a low use rate against targeted fungi, such as snow mold, seedborne and soilborne Fusarium, seedling blights or bunts, make fludioxonil a leading seed treatment molecule.
