New Trends in Fungicide Research: from In-furrow to Resistance Monitoring

Fungicide use in field crops has expanded in recent years beyond standard seed and foliar applications. In-furrow fungicide applications are promoted for multiple benefits, including foliar corn disease management and as a potential management option for Fusarium crown rot on corn. Research on efficacy of products for these uses will be presented, as well as an update on fungicide resistance monitoring efforts in the commonly used DMI-triazole fungicide group.
