The article highlights the first cereal fungicide conference held by Broom's Barn in 2008. According to Bill Clark, director of Broom's Barn, new fungicide chemistry is unlikely to replace triazoles in wheat fungicide programmes. At least three potential new fungicides in development were carboxamides with the same complex II respiration inhibitor mode of action as boscalid, he explained. Strobilurin manufacturers have rejected suggestions that the two-spray-per-season restriction on the fungicide class should be removed.
