The Sterol Biosynthesis Inhibitor (SBI) fungicide, propiconazole, is extensively used in modern agriculture to control fungal diseases. Unfortunately, little is known about its potential side effects on non-target plant-beneficial soil organisms such as arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF). The direct impact of increasing propiconazole concentrations (0.02; 0.2 and 2 mg x L(-1)) on the lipid metabolism of the AMF Glomus irregulare in relation with its development, was studied by using axenic… CONTINUE READING
