(Reviewed 4/13, updated 4/13, corrected 6/17)

In this Guideline:

Common name
(Example trade name)
Chemical class Activity Mode of action
(FRAC number)1
Resistance potential
cyprodinil (Vangard) anilinopyrimidine mostly contact, slightly systemic single-site (9) high
fludioxonil (Scholar) 2 phenylpyrrole contact few to multisite (12) medium
1 Group numbers are assigned by the Fungicide Resistance Action Committee (FRAC) according to different modes of actions. Fungicides with a different group number are suitable to alternate in a resistance management program. In California, make no more than one application of fungicides with mode-of-action group numbers 1, 4, 9, 11, or 17 before rotating to a fungicide with a different mode-of-action group number; for fungicides with other group numbers, make no more than two consecutive applications before rotating to fungicide with a different mode-of-action group number
2 Scholar is for postharvest use only.
