Can anybody explain what a 'systemic' fungicide is?
I don't really need to include a photo for this question, do I? But I have anyway, picture of sprayer just for a laugh. Ha, ha! Suppose I have a plant which is a little bit fungusy all over. If I spray a systemic fungicide on one half of a plant, just on one side of it, will it then be absorbed through the leaf and stem surfaces into the whole plant, including down into the roots system, and then kick out all fungus, including on the side on which I hadn't sprayed any? Is this what is meant by 'systemic'?
