Home/News/HFFA Research paper explores the economic and environmental impacts of the fungicide active ingredient Epoxiconazole in Germany and the European Union

Our newest research paper has been released today at a conference in Hannover. The study analyses yield and cost effects caused by Epoxiconazole and the economic as well as environmental impacts if this active ingredient would not be available anymore. It takes into account the wheat and barley production in Germany and the European Union. Special attention is drawn to the increasing resistance of fungi to certain fungicides.
