Fungicides are pesticides used to control fungi that can damage your plants and crops including rusts, mildews, and blights killing or preventing the growth of fungi and their spores. However, it is important to note that fungicides only protect yield potential in crops instead of increasing yield and retrieving lost yield if applied after infection is established. Before applying any fungicides, proper disease diagnosis must be carried out.

Without proper diagnosis, the use of the wrong treatment can cause more harm than good. Once the disease is determined, the type of fungicide treatment, amount, distribution method, and time of the year can be considered.
