This reference guide provides quick access to foliar fungicide recommendations from the Florida Citrus Production Guide. Also included are guidelines for fungicide resistance management.
Fungicide Resistance Management
Fungicide resistance is now problematic in Florida citrus groves, with documented strobilurin resistance causing control failure of Alternaria brown spot. These guidelines apply to all fungicide applications within a season and all fungal diseases.
- Make no more than the recommended number of sequential applications of any fungicide without alternating to another fungicide with a different mode of action (FRAC codes). To conserve fungicide efficacy, it is recommended to rotate modes of action with each application.
- Do not make more than the maximum number of applications of any fungicide class combined in a year for all diseases, and never exceed maximum label rates per acre per year.
- Control measures should begin before disease development and continue as indicated by recommended disease management practices. For guidance, consult the Florida Citrus Production Guide (http://www.crec.ifas.ufl.edu/resources/production-guide).
