Welcome to FRAC

Fungicides have become an integral part of efficient food production. The loss of a fungicide to agriculture through resistance is a problem that affects us all. FRAC works to prolong the effectiveness of fungicides liable to encounter resistance problems and to limit crop losses should resistance occur.


FRAC Resources

Communication and education is key to promoting awareness on fungicide resistance and effective resistance management strategies worldwide. FRAC has published a wide range of communication and educational material, all of which are available for free to download from the website:
