Isolates from Botrytis cinerea collected from greenhouse tomato crops throughout New Zealand were tested for resistance to the dicarboximide fungicide vinclozolin and the benzimidazole fungicide carbendazim by assessing fungal growth on agar media amended with the fungicides (100 ppm active ingredient for both fungicides) Benzimidazole resistant strains of B cinerea were found on 15 of the 18 properties examined and dicarboximideresistant strains were found on 11 properties Dicarboximide
