Technical Abstract: Flusilazole is a fungicide belonging to the ergosterol biosynthesis inhibitor class. This monograph provides a periodic review of flusilazole, which was prepared for the FAO/WHO Joint Meeting on Pesticide Residues. The reviewed data included information on physical and chemical properties, metabolism (plant and animal), environmental fate, analytical methods, storage stability, use pattern, supervised field trials, fate of residues during processing, farm animal feeding studies, and national maximum residue limits. The supervised trial information included data on pome fruit (apples and pears), stone fruit (apricots, nectarines, and peaches), grapes, bananas, cucumbers, sweet corn, soybeans, sugar beet, cereal grains (barley, rye, wheat, rice and maize) and oilseeds (rape seed and sunflower seed).
