  • The table does not include active constituents that have not yet been assigned an activity group by CropLife Australia
  • Products with the same active constituent but different use patterns are also included in the table for example, seed treatments and foliar.
  • New active constituents and products can only be included in the activity group table once they are formally registered by the APVMA for commercial use.
  • Some products are mixtures of fungicides from different activity groups. These appear only once in the table.
  • If multiple trade names exist, the trade name entry is listed as various and the first registered trade name included.

CropLife Australia’s Resistance Management Strategies provide a guide for crop protection product rotation through product groups. The strategies are a useful tool that supports farmers’ adoption of resistance management. All crop protection products must be handled and applied strictly as specified on the product label or APVMA permits.

These Resistance Management Strategies do not replace product labels. They are a guide only and do not endorse particular products, groups of products or cultural methods in terms of their performance. It is important to check with the Australian regulator’s (APVMA) product database for contemporary information on products and active constituents. The database can be sourced through
