LONDON, Dec. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Fungicides are critical components in the crop protection arsenal. However, there has been very little in-depth coverage about the costly and fast-growing threats from fungicidal resistance.
Fungicide resistance and increasingly stringent regulations are major threats to the commercial longevity of the majority of fungicide active ingredients.
This unique new Agrow report is based on an in-depth assessment of accessible literature and comprehensively explains what these threats are, how they arise, the science behind them, and how companies can challenge these threats in various crop varieties across the world.
Major themes explored in this report include:
- The complexities of the evolution of resistance to Demethylation Inhibitors (DMIs), especially in cereal pathogens.
- The first cases of resistance to newer Succinate Dehydro-genase Inhibitors (SDHI) fungicides, also mainly in cereal diseases.
- Multi-drug resistance primarily in Botrytis cinerea (and also in Zymoseptoria tritici), both via efflux pump mechanisms and the simultaneous acquisition of multiple target site mutations.
The risk of resistance to new and forthcoming fungicides, including biocontrol agents and ribonucleic acids (RNAs), is also discussed.
Resistance to fungicides has become a major preoccupation across the global crop protection industry and combatting resistance has taken centre stage in considering the development of new fungicides and the management of existing compounds.
