Fungicide resistance: Learning from other countries

Fungicide resistance: Learning from other countries

For decades, Canadian farmers have heard about the threat of herbicide resistance, and in some cases have adapted their farm practices to manage it first-hand. We hear far less about fungicide resistance.

Fungicide resistance has been found in other parts of the world, especially in Northern Europe. In Europe, the most important cereal diseases are Septoria tritici blotch (Septoria) of wheat, rusts and powdery mildew. Septoria has developed widespread resistance cases to the strobilurin fungicides, resulting in a significant shift to the triazoles.
