Fungicide Families or Groups

A grower should use fungicides with different modes of action. Tank-mix or rotate materials found in different fungicide families or groups to prevent or delay the development of resistant fungi. Groups below are not arranged in alphabetical order or in numerical order by group. In general, the first few groups are active on Botrytis and similar fungi (Groups 1, 2, 12, 9, 17 and 7). The next few groups are active on oomycetes (groups 4, P7, 40, 27, 28 and 43). Groups 3, 5, 11, U6, 50 and 13 are active on powdery mildews and many other fungi. The rest of the groups have multisite activity and make good mixing partners depending on the disease in question.
