DescriptionThis is an up-to-date guide on the science and practice of disease control based on fungicides in horticulture and broad acre agriculture. It describes how conventional, organic and biological fungicides are discovered, how they work and how resistance evolves. Chapters on formulation, mode of action, mobility and application inform decisions about which fungicides to use, when to use them, and how to rotate (or tank-mix) them, to manage both plant disease and fungicide resistance. A chapter on experimental design of fungicide trials aids practitioners in designing their own trials to evaluate how effective products are for their plant disease problem.
Based on the successful 2014 book of Fungicides in Crop Protection this edition has four entirely new chapters, and extensive updates to the other nine chapters.
The contents include:
· Fungicide markets, discovery and performance.
· Modes of action and spectrum.
· Biological crop protection, and organic cultivation.
· Fungicide formulation, mobility and application.
· Experimental design of fungicide trials and their analysis.
· Fungicide resistance.
· Legislation and regulation.
Written for crop protection professionals and scientists, growers, agronomists and consultants, the book is also suitable for students of agriculture and agronomy.

Professor Richard Oliver is John Curtin Distinguished Professor in the Centre for Crop Disease Management at Curtin University, Australia. Amongst other honours, Professor Oliver is an Honorary Fellow of the National Institute of Agricultural Botany (NIAB), Honorary Professor at Exeter and Nottingham Universities and was previously a Fellow at Rothamsted Research in the UK and a Visiting Professor at Wageningen University, The Netherlands. 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 research underpins her extension program.
