Resource Inventory

Fungicides

Fungicides are commonly used to control leaf, root and seedling diseases. The treatment of cereal and canola seed with fungicides, and fungicide-insecticide combinations, has increased considerably in recent years. Approximately 95 percent of canola, 45 percent of barley, 37 percent of wheat and 15 percent of oats are treated annually with fungicides in Alberta.
