Fungicides play a key role in modern agronomy but pathogen populations often adapt rapidly under the significant selection pressure exerted by these chemicals, threatening continued effectiveness of disease control. Typical advice to mitigate spread of fungicide-resistant strains involves utilising chemicals with different modes of action together in spray programmes. We use mathematical modelling to evaluate a range of different spray programmes, aiming to optimise for resistance management and yield. We also examine the trade-off between model generality and accuracy in providing practical advice for farmers and agronomists.
