Fungicide best practices to minimize resistance

Best management practices (BMPs) to minimize fungicide resistance have been added to ManageResistanceNow.ca  Fungicide resistance is already an issue in pulses, potatoes and fruit crops, according to Pierre Petelle, president and CEO of CropLife Canada.

 

Effectively managing fungicide resistance requires multiple strategies to promote both healthy plants and fungicide longevity, Petelle says. This will ultimately help maintain yield and crop quality. The ManageResistanceNow.ca website resources highlight three main factors that contribute to the development of fungicide resistance: agronomic factors, disease risk and fungicide risk.

 

In addition, the website features case studies profiling growers, crop advisors and researchers from across the country who share their experiences with fungicide resistance. In the near future, resources will be added to help growers manage insecticide resistance.
