The treatment of seeds in maize is of extreme importance, since it favors a better initial establishment of the plant, and itprotects against pathogens and insects, acting in a systemic way, contributing to a lower biological imbalance. The objective of this work was to evaluate the effect of different active principles of insecticides on seed treatment on the initial development of two maize hybrids. A randomized complete block design (DBC) was used in a factorial scheme, with 2 hybrids and 5 insecticides with 5 replications, with 1 pot with a volume of 8 dm3as a useful plot. It was concluded that the insecticides tested in seed treatment did not influence the initial development of corn.
