- 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.
