The article discusses the benefits of a well-timed fungicide in protecting crops and securing higher profits for Southern farmers, who are progressively using fungicides not just on peanuts but also on corn, cotton and soybeans, a practice which has been working for them in preventing some devastating diseases from infesting the crops. It is cited, however, that careful application must be observed to avoid the risk of fungicide resistance with triazole- or strobilurine-based products.

    Summary. Botrytis bunch rot of grapes is mainly controlled by applying fungicides at three crop stages: the end of flowering (BBCH 68), bunch closure (BBCH 77) and the beginning of veraison (BBCH 81). The phenylpyrroles derivative fludioxonil is among the most effective fungicides registered to...
