ADAMA Agricultural Solutions Canada Ltd. is introducing MAXENTIS®, a revolutionary, fungicide that combines two active ingredients to provide Canadian growers with a single, long-lasting solution for treating the most damaging crop diseases. Enhanced by Asorbital® Formulation Technology, it is the first fungicide in Canada to combine field-proven actives prothioconazole and azoxystrobin into one easy-to-use product. 

More than 50 farmer-applied large-scale trials were completed last year on multiple crops across Canada. Testing by third-party field trial service INTENT showed MAXENTIS was consistently best-in-class and provided control for an industry-leading length of time. ADAMA’s dual-mode protection technology in MAXENTIS produces higher yields across lentils, canola, soybeans and peas. It also offers resistance management with multiple modes of action with complete control of Group 11-insensitive anthracnose in lentils.

“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,” said Andre Barabach, Fungicide Product Manager with ADAMA Canada. “Additionally, our customers love that no ADAMA product is tied to a rebate program.”

The Asorbital 2 Formulation Technology in MAXENTIS ensures more fungicide is absorbed into the plant faster for long-lasting protection.  

“At the beginning of the season we weren’t sure if a fungicide would be worth it,” said grower Brenden Serna from Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta. “We are happy with the results this year and will definitely be using MAXENTIS next year.”

Systemic and translaminar movement created by the Asorbital Formulation Technology allows the fungicide to spread across the entire plant, even when sprayed on top of dense canopies, creating longer lasting and more complete coverage.

“I was impressed with the MAXENTIS I sprayed on my canola this year,” said grower Josh Wipf from Warburg, Alberta. “It performed similar to major competitors on the market and we saw a 9-bushel increase compared to the untreated check. I will definitely be using some more next year.”
