Fungicides in Practice
by Richard P. Oliver, Janna L Beckerman
This is a guide for practitioners and scientists involved in fungicide research and use. It describes the principles underlying decisions about which fungicides to use, when to apply them, and what dose to use. Readers should be able to successfully interpret the labels and promotional material that comes with fungicides as well the regulatory restrictions that govern their use. The focus is on broadacre and horticultural crops, such as cereals, vines, soft and pome fruits. Based loosely on the 2014 edition of Fungicides in Crop Protection this book is significantly altered with new content and major revisions to all chapters. The contents include: · Fungicide markets, discovery and performance · Using fungicides to control diseases - seed treatments, foliar treatments, application methods · Crop-specific aspects of disease control, with case studies · Biological crop protection, and organic cultivation · Fungicide resistance · Legislation and regulation The audience comprises growers, agronomists and consultants who have decision making responsibility in broadacre and horticultural crop protection. The book will also appeal to researchers in agro chemical companies and in the public sector research who are involved in fungicide discovery and resistance management.

He is also a past President of the British Society for Plant Pathology.; Dr. Janna Beckerman's research program is closely integrated with her extension and teaching programs and seeks applied solutions to plant disease problems faced by the growers of Indiana and Midwest. The diagnosis of plant pathogens, and fungicide resistance, followed by the management of these organisms provides the basis of Dr. Beckerman's research, which is then used in her extension programs. In this way, her extension program drives her research, and her rese
