What are the examples of fungicide?

A fungicide with broad-spectrum activity is effective against a large variety of pathogenic fungi. Examples of broad-spectrum fungicides include captan, sulfur, and mancozeb. Some fungicides have a very narrow spectrum of activity; for example, mefenoxam (group 4) is effective only against oomycetes like Phytophthora.

What are Group 11 fungicides?

The strobilurin, or QoI fungicides (FRAC group 11) are extremely useful in controlling a broad spectrum of common vegetable pathogens. You may know some of strobilurins as azoxystrobin (Quadris), trifloxystrobin (Flint), pyraclostrobin (Cabrio), or Pristine (pyraclostrobin + boscalid, 11 + 7).

Can fungicide hurt plants?

One side effect of fungicides is phytotoxicity, or a toxic effect on beneficial plants. For instance, the fungicide azoxystrobin, frequently used on grapes, can kill some apple varieties, while trifloxystrobin is harmful to certain grape cultivars but not others.
