The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently granted label registration to  Union Fungicide SC, a new dual formulation product from PBI-Gordon.

With the active ingredients azoxystrobin and cyazofamid, Union SC is a flowable liquid formulation fungicide that provides preventive and curative control of Pythium diseases (blight, damping-off, root dysfunction, root rot), brown patch, anthracnose, cool-weather brown patch, yellow patch, fairy ring, gray leaf spot, red thread, summer patch, and Rhizoctonia. 

It is approved for use on cool-season and warm-season grasses, such as Kentucky bluegrass, fine fescues, tall fescue, perennial ryegrass, bentgrass, Bermudagrass, bahiagrass, buffalograss, centipedegrass, kikuyugrass, seashore paspalum, St. Augustinegrass and zoysiagrass on golf courses, residential and commercial properties, sod farms and sports fields.

Testing has shown that Union is highly effective in the preventative and curative treatment of Pythium diseases (blight, damping-off, root dysfunction, root rot), brown patch, anthracnose, cool-weather brown patch, yellow patch, fairy ring, gray leaf spot, red thread, summer patch, and Rhizoctonia. 

It is approved for use on golf courses, residential and commercial properties, sod farms, and sports fields.

Available in 2.5-gallon jugs, label rates for Union range from 2.9 ounces to 5.75 ounces per 1,000 square feet. It will be available early next year.
