This article was published originally on 5/12/1995The SBI fungicides (Bayleton, Funginex, Orbit, Nova, Rubigan, and Procure) are widely used for disease control on apples and stone fruits because of their protectant and eradicant properties, wide spectrum of disease control, and their low toxicity to man and other mammals. They have a potential Achilles heel, however, in that their narrow mode of action on target fungi make them vulnerable to the development of resistant strains of these fungi. Much effort by University researchers and chemical companies has therefore been devoted to minimizing the risk of resistance development. In a recent issue of American Fruit Grower, an article by Wayne Wilcox and Wolfram Koeller of Cornell University outlined the main points of a anti- resistance strategy for apple scab:
