Azoxystrobin (brand name Amistar, Syngenta) is a systemic fungicide commonly used in agriculture.
The fungicide resistance action committee (FRAC) has several recommended practices to try to avoid the development of fungicide resistance, especially in at-risk fungicides including Strobilurins such as azoxystrobin.

These molecules bind very tightly to the Qo site of Complex III of the mitochondrial electron transport chain, thereby preventing production of ATP
Some have been commercialized as fungicides (the strobilurin derivatives, best known of which is azoxystrobin; QoI inhibitors) and as anti-malaria agents (atovaquone).

Strobilurus tenacellus

Azoxystrobin was discovered during research on Oudemansiella mucida and Strobilurus tenacellus, which are small white or brown coloured mushrooms commonly found in European forests.
The strobilurin-derived compound azoxystrobin, first made commercially available in 1996, was designed to overcome these limitations.
