I alternate therefore I generalize: how the intrinsic resistance risk of fungicides counterbalances their durability

Agathe Ballu, Philomène Despréaux, Clémentine Duplaix, Anne Dérédec, Florence Carpentier & Anne-Sophie Walker
The evolution of resistance to pesticides is a major burden in agriculture. Resistance management involves maximizing selection pressure heterogeneity, particularly by combining active ingredients with different modes of action. We tested the hypothesis that alternation may delay the build-up of resistance not only by spreading selection pressure over longer periods, but also by decreasing the rate of evolution of resistance to alternated fungicides, by applying an experimental evolution approach to the economically important crop pathogen...
