At Syngenta, we understand that early-season crop management is crucial to battling many threats and establishing a robust plantstand. Although potatoes are affected mostly by bacterial rots, they’re susceptible to some fungal diseases which can infect seedlings or daughter tubers, and may result in dead stolons and stems, weakened roots, and stunted plant growth. All of which can impact yield and quality.

Defending your plant from the start is why potato farmers across Canada turn to comprehensive liquid SeedcareTM solutions from Syngenta. Our liquid-formulation products are made with you and your primary pest problems in mind.

With liquid seed treatments, you can expect:

  • Even coverage, ensuring optimal protection.
  • Broad-spectrum defense against a wide range of diseases.
  • Visual confirmation with on-the-side colourant, simplifying calibration and identification of treated potatoes.
  • Better flowability, ensuring precise and efficient application for best pest control.
  • Reduced chemical exposure with application according to label directions, fostering a safer work environment.
  • Less cleanup, allowing you to focus on the things that matter most.

Cruiser Maxx® Vibrance® Potatoes (Group 4 + 3 + 7 + 12): provides broad spectrum, robust control against Rhizoctonia, Fusarium, and silver scurf and early season protection from Colorado Potato Beetle, Aphids and potato leaf hopper.

Using Cruiser Maxx Vibrance Potato to control fusarium on infected seed pieces leads to larger, more advanced plants when compared to untreated fusarium infected seed pieces.
