Fungicide Resistance in Crop ProtectionRisk and Management
Edited by T Thind, Punjab Agricultural University, India
Pathogen resistance to fungicides has become a challenging problem in the managing of crop diseases and has threatened the performance of some highly potent commercial fungicides. Worldwide, resistance to more than 100 different active ingredients has been reported. This book compiles information on fungicide resistance over the past three decades on the status, development, and processes involved in the build-up of resistance in pathogens to different groups of fungicides, while also suggesting various measures for managing this problem.
Researchers and students in plant pathology and mycology.

Thind Dr. Tarlochan S. Thind works as a Senior Plant Pathologist and Head of the Department of Plant Pathology at Punjab Agricultural University in Ludhiana, India, and is also currently President of the Indian Phytopathological Society. He has 33 years' experience of working on disease problems in vegetables, fruits and cereals. His areas of research include use of epidemiological parameters in need-based application of fungicides in managing plant diseases, variability in plant pathogens and the problem of fungicide resistance in plant pathogens. Dr. Thind has also worked at INRA, France, and served as FAO consultant for disease diagnosis in vegetable crops in West Africa.
