Trifloxystrobin based seed treatment fungicides control seed rot and pre-emergence damping-off of canola, pulses, and corn
Active ingredient Trifloxystrobin belongs to the strobilurin class of fungicides which possess improved safety and environmental characteristics. The objective of this research was to evaluate the efficacy of seed treatment fungicides based on Trifloxystrobin to control seed rot and pre-emergence damping off of canola, pulses, and corn crops. In 2004-2006, canola, pulses, and corn trials were conducted in Saskatchewan (Aberdeen, Allan, Indian Head, and Wakaw), Alberta (Vegreville), and Manitoba (High Bluff). The experimental design used was a randomized complete block design with four replications. Seed treatments fungicide tested were Trilex FL (trifloxystrobin [10g]/100 kg of seed); Trilex AL (trifloxystrobin [5g] + Allegiance FL (metalaxyl) [4g]/100 kg of seed); and Trilex FL (trifloxystrobin [5g]/100 kg of seed) tank mixed with Allegiance FL (metalaxyl) [2g]/100 kg of seed) Plants were counted at 14 to 28 days after planting. Data were analyzed using an ANOVA. Trifloxystrobin based seed treatment fungicides possessed excellent efficacy for controlling seed rot and pre-emergence damping-off of canola, pea, lentil, chickpea, and corn crops grown in soils infected with Rhizoctonia solani or Fusarium avenaceum.
