Sunflower seeds were treated carboxin + thiram (Vitavax power @ 3g kg-1) and the systemic component carboxin was analysed in seeds and seedlings upto one month period at weekly intervals using LC-MS/MS. Maximum residues of carboxin were recorded in sunflower seeds (282.92 mg kg-1) stored for a week, in seedlings (0.63 mg kg-1) at immediately after emergence (zero days). Fungicide residues were found to be very less in seedlings when compared to seeds and this can be attributed to degradation of fungicide at the time of seedling emergence and its further growth.

Keywords: LC-MS/MS, Fungicide residues, Vitavax power, Dissipation of carboxin.
