Fungicides are chemical or biological organisms that specifically inhibit or kill disease-causing fungi. Fungicides are used for three primary reasons: to control disease, increase productivity, and improve the quality and shelf life of the crop produced.

How Fungicides Work
Fungicides are essential tools in crop protection, designed to control, prevent, or kill disease-causing fungi. Fungal diseases like downy mildew, powdery mildew, grey leaf spot, northern corn leaf blight, and tar spot can severely impact plant health, quality, or yield. Some fungicides act as preventive protectants, others assist by controlling diseases. By targeting the growth, reproduction, or initial infection of the fungi, crops can remain free of those diseases, resulting in healthier plants and higher yields.
