Plant pathogenic fungi cause damage to the world's crop production that is valued at many millions of dollars annually. The main means of control is through chemical fungicides, even though these may now be used as part of a more general strategy of integrated pest management, including biological control. New fungicides continue to be developed by agrochemical companies, especially when resistance from pathogens develops to existing formulations. There is therefore a continuing need for information on fungicides in crop protection. This book provides a concise and balanced review of fungicides and their application to crop protection. An unusual feature is the provision of a perspective from the manufacturing industry, including discussion of the global market for fungicides, and the discovery and development process. The perspectives of the farmer and the consumer are also considered. Other major topics addressed include fungicide mode of action, resistance, legislation governing usage and the use of biotechnology and natural products. The book is aimed at advanced undergraduates and graduate students in plant pathology, as well as advisors, extension workers and new recruits to the agrochemical industry.
