Fungicide Resistance in North America discusses the activities of academia, government, and extension. This book documents the active involvement of industry scientists in fungicide resistance research and management and their cooperative efforts to preserve the effectiveness of fungicides. Each of the four major fungicide groups at risk is covered.
From the Preface:
Resistance to fungicides in plant pathogen populations is one of the most significant problems confronting North American agriculture in the area of chemical disease management. Since fungicides are likely to continue as the mainstay of disease management in North America for the foreseeable future, effective control of plant disease requires effective management of fungicide resistance in pathogen populations. This ensures the longest possible useful life of these plant disease control agents. The most effective fungicides available for plant disease control may be classified into four groups: the benzimidazoles, the dicarboximides, the demethylation inhibitors, and the phenylamides. Cross-resistance is common within these groups, and although there is a selection of commercially available products, the phenomenon of cross-resistance narrows the choice. Any pathogen population that is resistant to one fungicide within a group will probably be cross-resistance to other members of that group. It is this interaction of potential problems that makes cooperation an imperative.
This book is based on the papers presented and the discussions at a workshop designed to focus on solutions to resistance problems in North America. The Fungicide Resistance Action Committee (FRAC), in cooperation with the Department of Plant Pathology at Penn State University, organized and sponsored the North American Fungicide Resistance Workshop and Conference on September 20-25th, 1987, at University Park, Pennsylvania.
