Strobilurin

Strobilurins are a group of chemical compounds used in agriculture as fungicides[?]. They are part of the larger group of QoI.

Some strobilurins are azoxystrobin, kresoxim-methyl, picoxystrobin, pyraclostrobin and trifloxystrobin.

Strobilurins represented a major development in fungus-based fungicides. They were extracted from the fungus Strobilurus tenacellus. They have a suppressive effect on other fungi, reducing competition for nutrients; they inhibit electron transfer in mitochondria, disrupting the metabolic processes of the target fungi.
