Fungicides

apple-455436_1280Fungi are the largest number of plant pathogens responsible for a range of serious plant diseases. Some of them damage or kill the host plant, while others produce mycotoxins that can cause health hazards to people and animals.

The range of fungicides available on the market is decreasing due to regulatory restrictions. Many species of fungi are developing resistance to the most commonly used fungicides, with devastating impact on agricultural yields across the world.

Early trials data on Septoria sp. and Asian soybean rust resistant strains suggest that the introduction of Pangaea’s technology to existing azole and anilnopyrimidine fungicides has a significant effect on their efficacy. Further trials are taking place in both laboratory and greenhouse conditions to optimise the technology and determine the levels of efficacy that can be achieved against resistant fungi strains.
