About this book

Fungicides for Field Crops provides an overview of the current knowledge of fungicides and their use on field crops. This comprehensive book, which includes the contributions of 40 professionals from 20 universities and other organizations, combines past knowledge about fungicides with recent developments in the realm of field crop fungicides.

Fungicides for Field Crops highlights the use of fungicides as key tools in the management of important diseases of field crops. Management is presented as a decision-making process – one in which factors as diverse as weather conditions and economics must be considered. Having a more complete understanding of fungicides will inform that decision making and help determine when fungicides should be included as part of a management plan.

Daren S. Mueller and his co-editors have organized Fungicides for Field Crops in a general-to-specific format, making the content accessible to readers of all backgrounds:

- Parts I, II, and III establish a foundation of knowledge about fungicide use, addressing basic terms and concepts, key factors in decision making, and concerns for fungicide stewardship, respectively.
- Part IV presents details about using fungicides to manage diseases of 16 field crops. Each crop is treated in a separate section that begins with a discussion of general issues of foliar application and seed treatment and ends with an inclusive table identifying diseases of that crop, including what causes them and how fungicides may be used to treat them.

131 color photographs illustrate disease symptoms and show techniques and enhance the key concepts described in the text.

Fungicides for Field Crops will serve as a valuable resource for agribusiness professionals, researchers and extension personnel, farmers and crop production advisors, and teachers and students. Both current and future agronomists and farmers can rely on Fungicides for Field Crops not only for useful baseline information but also for crop-specific details about the effective and responsible use of fungicides.
