Resistance Management

Pesticides control various types of pests - weeds, harmful insects, and disease-causing organisms such as fungi, bacteria, and viruses. Effective pest management depends upon chemicals that perform consistently on the target pests over time. The efforts to Syngenta to maintain effective crop protection products combine a wide array of proven resistance management techniques not only to prevent pest resistance, but also to manage it when it occurs.

Syngenta has summarized important general and product-specific information concerning resistance here. Due to the large amount of information on this subject and the constant evolution of resistance, this Web site cannot be all-inclusive nor always up-to-date. We invite your suggestions and additions (click here).

Although various general and product-specific resistance management strategies are provided here, always follow the directions on the product label. Resistance management strategies can differ for a specific combination of crop, pest, product, and geographical area. Contact your Land Grant University for additional resistance management strategies.
