Azoxystrobin, the active ingredient in AZteroid FC 3.3 has long been an industry standard for control of key seedling disease like rhizoctonia. Other in-furrow fungicides have proven to either have less efficacy than azoxystrobin or are not labelled for control of seedling diseases (Xyway™, for example). Starter fertilizer, along with AZteroid FC 3.3 is the best choice for improving plant stands, increasing seedling emergence, and early season plant health. This sets up the crop for success later in the season and helps fulfill its potential.
