Fungicides are substances that either eliminate or stop the development of fungi and their spores. Fungicides have a variety of actions, but the major fungicides have a damaging effect on the membranes of fungi or prevent them to spread.

Broad-spectrum fungicides are typically contact-based, multi-sited fungicides that are not only effective against diseases that are closely related to it, but also against pathogens that are unrelated to it. Contact fungicides only protect the plant where the spray is placed because they are not absorbed into the plant tissue.

Fungal disease management could be difficult sometimes and as a result, farmers must prioritize its management. Scientists and experts both usually recommend using fungicides to reduce production loss.

As a result, IFFCO and Mitsubishi Corporation established a joint venture to create Sasage, a contact fungicide with both preventative and curative properties.
