Which of these fungicides is the best?

I can't decide which one I should get for damping off. I want one that's systemic and works on most of the fungi responsible for damping off. So if you've tried any, or know which is best, please let me know!

Agri-Fos Systemic Fungicide
Mancozeb Plus

Or something else?

RE: Which of these fungicides is the best?

The best solution to damping off of seedlings raised indoors under lights that I have found is to use a fan. I set it up to GENTLY oscillate for 30-60 mins twice a day. No damping off and nice strong seedlings are the result, even when the surface of the planting medium shows obvious signs of a fungal infection.

That doesn't help me. I've tried fans, grit, chamomile, cinnamon, hydrogen peroxide, sterilizing, I've tried EVERYTHING so I'm only interested in commercial fungicides at this time. Thanks.
