FUNGICIDE RESISTANCE BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICES

There are three main factors that impact resistance risk: agronomic factors, disease risk, and fungicide risk. Read on for practices that will help you manage risk in each area. Start today to manage fungicide resistance on your farm.

1 USE AGRONOMIC PRACTICES THAT PROMOTE HEALTHY PLANTS TO REDUCE DISEASE RISK
Reduce your risk of disease by using cropping practices that ensure plants are healthy.

3 SELECT FUNGICIDES STRATEGICALLY
When selecting fungicides, be sure to first understand the resistance risk of the fungicide, the disease, and agronomic factors. If possible, and where high resistance risk exists (for certain pathogens), plan to mix and rotate fungicide groups active on the pathogen.
