The spirohydantoins are biologically active substances which are used in medicine as well as in the field of agricultural sciences. The available literature data on the fungicidal activity of some representatives of that group of compounds determined the direction of the study. The purpose of this paper is to assess the impact of cyclopentanespiro-5-hydantoin, cyclopentanespiro-5-(2,4-dithiohydantoin) and 1-aminocyclopentanecarboxylic acid on Blumeria graminis f. sp. tritici. The conducted in vitro tests clearly showed the ability of the tested products to control the wheat powdery mildew.
