Plants are attacked by a wide range of fungi which are the cause of considerable losses to yield and quality of crops. The famines and economic catastrophies caused by fungal epidemics over the centuries are of huge proportions. Modern systemic and non-systemic fungicides are prone to fungal resistance and therefore there is a real need for novel fungicides with different modes of action to the ones currently in use.
