ADAMA Canada has launched Maxentis fungicide for use on lentils, canola, soybeans and peas.

Maxentis is a dual active ingredient product, featuring Asorbital 2 formulation technology. It is the first fungicide in Canada to combine prothioconazole and azoxystrobin into one product. Asorbital 2 allows for systemic and trans-laminar movement to move the fungicide throughout the entire plant, even when sprayed on top of dense canopies, the company says.

ADAMA notes the product was tested over more than 50 farmer-applied large-scale trials in 2023 on multiple crops across Canada. In addition to a wide window of disease prevention, the product offers resistance management with multiple modes of action with complete control of Group 11-insensitive anthracnose in lentils, the company says.

“With this industry-leading disease protection in hand, for the first time Canadian growers have access to a fungicide that enables them to spray faster and more efficiently across multiple crops, and across multiple stages of plant growth and disease development,” says Andre Barabach, fungicide product manager with ADAMA Canada. “Additionally, our customers love that no ADAMA product is tied to a rebate program.”
