Subject: Question re Xylem
I have read that systemic pesticides do not translocate to the flower par=
t. Is it because the xylem does not go into the flower? Or does it? Is=
it because flower parts are differentiated from the rest of the plant? =
All this came up because of the dreaded budworm and why systemics are not=
effective. I guess I mean systemics that are absorbed through the roots=
and not contact ones that might absorb into the flower part.
Hope someone can give me a lesson!
