Xanthion® In-furrow fungicide is the newest tool from BASF designed to help you protect your seed investment and maximize your yield potential. Different from every other early-season crop management treatment, Xanthion In-furrow fungicide provides extended disease protection by covering the area around the seed and in the furrow. This is critical for protecting against damaging corn seedling and root diseases, including Rhizoctonia seed and seedling rot, Fusarium seed rot and seedling blight and Pythium damping off.
Field research trials show Xanthion In-furrow fungicide provides more rapid emergence, extended residual control and improved seedling health than untreated crops. Trials also show corn plants treated with this new fungicide increased emergence by, on average 1,700 plants compared to the untreated check*
How It Works
Xanthion In-furrow fungicide works by providing early, rapid and more uniform emergence and better root structure. The fungicide helps control soilborne diseases and provides improved cold tolerance, promoting seedling health. Improved seedling health allows for increased nutrient and water uptake, maximizing yield potential.
Xanthion In-furrow fungicide provides extended residual control by forming a protective sheath around the roots. This can lead to healthier plants later in the season.
This is the first fungicide on the market to combine a chemical fungicide and a biofungicide. This combination, which contains the same active ingredients as in Headline® fungicide, and an EPA registered biofungicide, provides two modes of action to help protect your seed investment by improving seedling health.
Growers looking for maximum disease protection for their corn crops throughout the growing season can also follow up with Priaxor® fungicide pre-tassel, and/or Headline AMP® fungicide at tassel.
