The Value and Benefits of Fungicides in U.S. Crop Production is the second in a series of pesticide benefit studies conducted by CPRI staff and funded by CropLife America and its member companies to quantify and communicate the underlying reasons for and benefits of agricultural pesticide use. The study examines fungal and bacterial diseases infecting 50 crops grown in the United States. Through a crop-based case study approach, the study discusses production practices and disease pressure, estimates fungicide use and potential losses to plant diseases, and quantifies the impact of chemical disease control on crop production and farm income.
