Managing Fungicide Resistance – Best Practice
- Exploit all practical, non-chemical control options
- Use varieties with resistance to the main diseases of concern
- Minimise the number of applications – only use fungicides when the risk or presence of disease warrants treatment, and treat before the infection becomes well established
- Use the minimum dose required to effectively control the target disease
- Include a multisite fungicide, where available, in both the early and late-season sprays
- Make use of effective fungicides with different modes of action in alternate sprays or mixtures
- Avoid repeat applications of the same mode of action B
