  • Fungicides can kill beneficial fungi in the soil, which can lead to a decline in soil health.
  • This decline in soil health can lead to a decrease in the soil's ability to hold onto water and nutrients, which can lead to increased soil erosion.
  • Fungicides can also kill helpful bacteria in the soil, which can further degrade soil health.
  • The use of fungicides can therefore have a negative impact on the environment by contributing to soil erosion and degradation.
  • To minimize the potential for soil erosion and degradation, it is important to use fungicides only when absolutely necessary and to follow all label directions carefully.
