what is a fungicide

A fungicide is a type of product or substance used to prevent, control or eliminate pathogenic fungi that affect plants. Fungi can cause plant diseases such as powdery mildew, powdery mildew, rust, and root rot, among others.

Fungicides work by inhibiting the growth and development of fungi or by destroying their cells. When applied to plants, fungicides form a protective barrier or are absorbed into plant tissues, helping to prevent or stop the spread of fungal diseases.

There are different types of fungicides, which vary in their mode of action and in the form of application. Some fungicides are preservatives, meaning they are applied before fungi appear to prevent infection. Other fungicides are curatives, designed to stop the spread of the 

disease after infection has already occurred. There are also systemic fungicides, which are absorbed by the plant and distributed through its vascular system, thus protecting all its parts.

It is important to use fungicides in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions and respecting the safety periods indicated. In addition, it is recommended to integrate the use of fungicides with other integrated pest management practices, such as crop rotation, proper pruning, moisture control, and the use of resistant varieties, to minimize reliance on chemicals and promote sustainable management of fungal diseases in plants.
