Abstract:

In order to feed increasing population there is need of solution which can provide quick result which is possible with fungicides. Fungicides are necessary evils to kill unwanted pest and disease causing organisms in the agro-ecosystem. These are indispensible tool for protecting the crops and increasing food production. Soil applications of fungicides have been frequently used to control soil borne fungal diseases. Fungicides are used for killing or inhibiting the growth of fungus. They are extensively used in pharmaceutical industry, agriculture, in protection of seed during storage and in preventing the growth of fungi that produce toxins. Hence, fungicides production is constantly increasing as a result of their great importance to agriculture. On the other hand some fungicides affect humans and beneficial microorganisms including insects, birds and fish thus public concern about their effects is increasing day by day. Moreover, Certain fungicides, usually systemic fungicides, are said to be 'at risk' to the development of resistance if they are used repeatedly. In order to enrich the knowledge on beneficial and adverse effects of fungicides this article summarized impact of fungicide on photosynthesis, lipid steroid & membrane, nucleic acid, amino acid & protein synthesis, respiration, mitosis and cell division, and Multisite activity, as well as on their side effects on non target organisms
