Castor plant (Ricinus communis L.) presents relevant economic importance due mainly to its oil content. The use of seed treatment with fungicides is a secure, low-cost measure, but in Brazil there are no registered chemicals for the culture of castor. This way the work was done in order to assess the seed treatment influence with fungicides in the early development of the castor plants. The experiment was conducted in protected environment, Maringá University, campus Umuarama–Paraná State, Brazil. In ten vessels the seeds were treated with fungicide dose of 120 ml of i.a. for 100 kg of seed, the active ingredients were carboxin+thiram and ten other vessels did not receive any treatment. Height of the plant at 7, 14 and 21 days after the emergence (DAE) was measured and at 21 DAE dry matter of the shoots and roots were determined. There was no significant difference between treatments for plant height and dry matter of the shoot.
