MAI to invest in UK Septoria resistance research

Makhteshim-Agan Industries (MAI) is to invest £250,000 ($400,410) in an eight-month research project in the UK to study resistance shifts in Septoria spp to strobilurin, triazole and succinate dehydrogenase inhibitor (SDHI) fungicides. The project will be led by UK-based research centre Rothamsted Research and agricultural consultancy ADAS and involve the UK National Institute for Agricultural Botany, the Irish agriculture and food development authority, the Teagasc, and the department of integrated pest management at the Danish Aarhus University. The research aims to unlock the reasons behind resistance development and manage the process to delay further build-up of resistance to key single-site triazole chemistry. The researchers hope to apply the findings from the study of resistance build-up to strobilurins to the new SDHI products and prevent resistance affecting that chemical group.
