Resistance Management

Pesticides are often the most effective tools available for managing diseases, insects and weeds.  However, resistance to pesticides is a serious and growing problem worldwide, where pests are no longer controlled by a pesticide that has been effective in the past.

The Fungicide Resistance Action Committee (FRAC), Herbicide Resistance Action Committee (HRAC) and Insecticide Resistance Action Committee (IRAC) are specialist technical groups of CropLife International and works to prevent or delay development of resistance and limit crop losses.  For more information, visit:
