Getting Familiar With Fungicides

WHY FUNGICIDES?

Fungicides are an integral part of efficient food production to not only protect yield, but to maintain the quality of the grain, vegetable, or fruit. A fungicide is not needed in every field, nor in every year to manage diseases, but the availability of fungicides is a valuable tool. Equally so, the loss of a fungicide through disease resistance is a problem that affects us all.

At the core of fungicide use is an understanding of the disease triangle. Disease can only occur if all three of these factors are present:

  • If a plant is susceptible to the disease-causing organism(s)
  • There is a pathogen (fungus) present to infect the host
  • There is a proper environment for the crop and pathogen to grow
