Fungicides are chemical substances used to combat fungi - a group of organisms that include yeasts, moulds and mushrooms. Fungicides can target both fruiting fungi and fungal spores, either by destroying them or inhibiting their growth and spread. Many fungi are parasitic in nature, attacking plants, animals, and sometimes, other fungi. These fungi are a serious concern in the agricultural industry, where they can affect profits and yields. The term 'fungicide' is also used to describe chemicals that attack oomycetes, which are not actually fungi, but behave in a similar fashion.

There are three main classes of fungicide. Contact fungicides only protect the area of the plant on which they are sprayed. Translaminar fungicides are sprayed onto a leaf's surface, but penetrate the leaves to create a reservoir of active ingredient that affects parasites on the unsprayed underside of the leaf. Systemic (or more often "locally systemic" or "upwardly systemic") fungicides are absorbed and distributed through the xylem vessels of a plant, but may be less effective against organisms that do not feed on the vascular tissues.

There are many types of fungicide spray depending on the plant it’s intended for. These fungicides include organic, lawn, grass, tree, systemic, natural, potassium bicarbonate, chlorothalonil, weed killer, daconil, permethrin, mancozeb, and many others.
