Minutes and guidelines of the Banana Working Group (WG) from the meeting on April 30th to  May 1st 2018 are now available.

A summary of monitoring-data is given in the Banana WG minutes (link) in English. A Spanish version will follow in due time.

Recommendations were extended for two chemical classes (QiI and Toluamides). Based on the monitoring, the alternation interval of DMIs was extended  to "if possible [to] 2 cycles with other MoA in between". For the soil treatment of SDHIs for nematicidal use the sentence "Soil and foliar applications should preferably synchronized." was added. No further changes were made to Banana Fungicide Use Guidelines for 2018 (link)
