Resistance to postharvest fungicides in Florida's citrus packinghouses

David J. Hall


Developed resistance to postharvest fungicides is a serious problem in many citrus packing areas. Florida has apparently avoided this problem for many years. During the past 25 years, assays for resistant molds have been conducted in Florida citrus packinghouses. This report is a summary of the results of these assays. While rarely encountered, those cases where resistance was encountered can help understand how the problem may be avoided.
