Carbendazim is a widely used broad-spectrum benzimidazole fungicide. A 4.7% solution of carbendazim hydrochloride is sold as Eertavas, an effective treatment for Dutch elm disease.

Carbendazim was included in a biocide ban proposed by the Swedish Chemicals Agency [2] and approved by the European Parliament on January 13, 2009.[3]

The fungicide is controversially used in Queensland, Australia on macadamia plantations.[4]
