Fungicide resistance management in cereals

Learn about the fungicide resistance status of cereal diseases and how resistance can be managed

Fungicides are essential to maintain healthy crops and high-quality yields. However, their effectiveness has been affected by fungicide resistance in some target pathogens.

The fungicide resistance status of the key cereal diseases is outlined in this publication. It also describes the resistance risk associated with the main fungicide groups and how they should be used to help protect their long-term efficacy.


The Fungicide Resistance Action Group (FRAG-UK) is a forum that looks at fungicide resistance issues and publishes information and advice relevant to the UK. The group combines the expertise of industry with the independent sector to produce up-to-date information on the resistance status of important diseases in UK agriculture and to suggest ways to combat resistance.
