Innovation in disease control
Fungal infections can affect the fruit, root, stem, leaves or seed of crops, reducing growth and seed formation, and in some cases destroying the plant itself. Some fungi can also render crops unsuitable for sale or consumption.
Fungicides protect a wide range of crops from harmful fungi. Fungicides are classified into approximately 15 different groups. Strobilurins and triazoles (DMI) are two of the most important.
Protecting crops from fungi
FMC’s fungicide portfolio includes products from these two important groups. Our products are widely used for high-level control of a variety of fungal diseases in New Zealand's most important crops.
