Title: Toxicity of Chlorothalonil, Metrafenone and Prochloraz-Mn Fungicides towards Agaricus bisporus: In vitro and In vivo Evaluation
Author: Navarro, M.J.; Carrasco, J.; Gea, F.J.
Chemical control of fungal diseases requires highly selective fungicides in order to prevent infection
without affecting the growth of A. bisporus. The aim of this study was to evaluate the potential toxicity
on A. bisporus mycelium of some fungicides commonly used in mushroom growing crops, and their
effect on yield after fungicide drenches applied to the casing layer.
