Chemical fungicides are the biocidal materials that can kill or prevent the growth of the fungi and their developmental spores. The chemical fungicides can be used to control the deadly fungal infections of the plants like rusts, mildews and blights. Fungicides’ activity may be systemic as well as contact. The growing tips of the pathogenic fungi will be disrupted, or plant cells may be triggered to produce the anti-fungal agents to kill the pathogenic fungi or make plants develop resistance to the fungal attacks.
Fungicides are available in soluble powders, Wettable powders, Wettable granules, wettable dry granules, soluble liquids, soluble concentrate, suspendable concentrates and emulsifiable concentrate.
