Fusarium spp. are key pathogens in maize seeds and seedlings. Seed-borne infections have an important impact on both the population and vigor of maize plants. F. verticillioides led to higher seedling mortality than F. graminearum, while both species reduced plant growth and delayed flowering. The seed dressing increased the plant density, vigor during the whole vegetative growth cycle for all the production situations, and grain yield. The 4-way fungicide (fludioxonil, metalaxyl-M, azoxystrobin, thiabendazole) enhanced both the defense of the seedlings and the vigor of plants infected with F. verticillioides, which, in turn, resulted in a significant improvement in grain yield, compared to a conventional 2-way fungicide (fludioxonil, metalaxyl-M).
