Resistance Management Strategy for:
Group 3 DMI (Demethylation Inhibitor);
Group 7 SDHI (Succinate dehydrogenase Inhibitors); and
Group 7+3 (SDHI + DMI).
- Fungicides should be used as preventatively as possible or at first sign of disease. If disease is established within the canopy, fungicides may not produce optimal results and there is very strong potential to select for fungicide resistance.
- In high risk disease environments, integrated management approaches should be used to reduce fungicide resistance risk including growing canola at least 500 m from previous seasons canola stubble, the use of resistant varieties, using alternative fungicide modes of action and stubble management such as knocking down and/or strategic burning.
- The risk of developing resistance to fungicides can be reduced by incorporating different modes of action into blackleg management programs as either mixtures, co-formulations or rotations.
- If a Group 7 seed treatment has been used with foliar activity on blackleg (as determined by label claims), the seedling fungicide application at 4-6 leaf stage targeting blackleg should not contain a Group 7 fungicide.
- DO NOT apply more than two applications containing Group 7 fungicides per growing season when targeting blackleg. Combinations of in furrow and seed treatment are counted as one application.
- Minimise use of fungicides which are known to have compromised resistance status.
