E-mail Print PDF
 
M. P. Srivastava, FNAS, Chairperson, International Working Group on Plant Health Clinic

Quinone outside inhibitor fungicides are synthetic derivatives of naturally occurring strobillurin compounds introduced in the late 1990s and represent a novel group of fungicides, highly active against a broad range of fungi belonging to Oomycetes, Ascomycetes, Basidiomycetes and Deuteromycetes. They are mitochondrial respiration inhibitors (MRI) which inhibit fungal respiration at the Quinone “Outside” (Qo) binding site of the cytochrome bc 1 complex. Being site-specific, they are at risk from the development of resistance in the target plant pathogens.

E-mail Print PDF
(Resume of presentation by Dr MP Srivastava at ‘3rd international Symposium on Plant Protection and Plant Health in Europe’ at Berlin, Germany, 14-16 May, 2009)

Ever growing population and unprecedented losses due to plant pests pose serious threat to our food security. Managing population is an uphill task but devastating losses can be prevented by providing stringent security to plants through phytomedicines and plant health clinic and thereby assuring food security. Phytomedicines/pesticides not only control plant diseases/pests, but also improve productivity, which is otherwise lost to pests.
