Technical Profile: RUBIGAN

Insect Resistance Management (IRM)

Group 3 Fungicide

DuPont™ Rubigan* SC fungicide is a member of the DMI group of fungicides. For fungicide resistance management the product is a Group 3 Fungicide.

Some naturally occurring individual fungi resistant to the product and other Group 3 Fungicides may exist through normal genetic variability in any fungal population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the fungal population if these fungicides are used repeatedly. These resistant fungi will not be controlled by this product or other Group 3 fungicides, thus resulting in a reduction in efficacy and possible yield loss.

Since the occurrence of resistant fungi is difficult to detect prior to use, DuPont accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of this product to control resistant fungi.

Integrated Pest Management (IPM)

IPM is a flexible approach which makes use of all available technologies to manage pest problems effectively and safely. IPM strategies consist of three basic components:

  • Prevention of pest build-up
  • Monitoring of pest levels, and natural control mechanisms, such as beneficial insects
  • Intervention where control measures are needed
