Pedigree Fungicide is specifically formulated to control a wide range of Basidiomycete turf diseases. It contains the same active ingredient as ProStar which effectively targets diseases such as brown patch, fairy ring, large patch, brown ring patch, red thread, yellow patch, pink patch, leaf and sheath spot, and gray snow mold. This powerful systemic fungicide is in a liquid flowable formula, making it more flexible and easy to apply to plants. Inhibits the growth of pathogens and stops stages in the disease life-cycle, making it a perfect preventive treatment. Ideal to use on residential and commercial lawns, sod farms, sports fields, and golf courses. Proven to be long-lasting because it provides protection for up to 7 to 28 days, depending on the level of disease pressure. Sold at a comparatively lower price than ProStar with 40% active liquid formulation. Available in a 2.5-gallon jug.
Brown patch, fairy ring, leaf and sheath spot, brown ring patch, red thread, pink patch, yellow patch, gray snow mold, and large patch.

The active ingredient in Pedigree Fungicide SC is flutolanil and belongs to the succinate dehydrogenase inhibitor class (FRAC Group 7). Because resistance development cannot be predicted, the use of this product should conform to resistance management strategies established for the crop and use area. Such strategies may include rotating and/or tank mixing with products having different modes of action or limiting the total number of applications per season. PBI-Gordon Corporation encourages responsible product stewardship to ensure effective long-term control of the fungal diseases on this label.
Pedigree Fungicide SC Alone: Fill spray tank with ¾ of the amount of water needed for the intended application and then turn on agitation. Pour the specified amount of product on the surface of the water in the spray tank. Add the balance of the water to the spray tank with agitation running. Keep agitation running during filling and spraying operations. If spraying must be stopped before emptying the sprayer, resume agitation before spraying the remainder of the load. Mix only as much spray solution as can be sprayed within four hours. Storage and use of the previous day’s spray mix may result in reduced activity.
Pedigree Fungicide SC in Tank Mixtures: Begin with clean equipment. Fill spray tank with ¾ of the amount of water needed for the intended application and turn on agitation. If using a buffering agent, add after filling the tank with the ¾ amount of water. Do not use oil as a carrier or include other additives in the finished spray. Add the recommended amount of tank mix products in the following order while maintaining agitation:
the remaining amount of water to achieve the desired level
Always follow the labeled mixing instructions of any partner products. Keep agitation running during filling and spraying operations. If spraying must be stopped before emptying the sprayer, resume agitation before spraying the remainder of the load. Mix only as much spray solution as can be sprayed within four hours. Storage and use of the previous day’s spray mix may result in reduced activity.
SPRAY DRIFT MANAGEMENT
Spray equipment and weather affect spray drift. Consider all factors when making application decisions. Where states have more stringent regulations, they must be observed. Avoiding spray drift is the responsibility of the applicator or grower. To reduce the potential for drift, the application equipment must be set to apply medium or larger droplets (i.e. ASABE Standard 572) with corresponding spray pressure. Use high flow rate nozzles to apply the highest practical spray volume, using the appropriate droplet size to ensure adequate canopy distribution, coverage, and penetration. With most nozzle types, narrow spray angles produce larger droplets. Follow the nozzle manufacturer’s directions on pressure, orientation, spray volume, etc., in order to minimize drift and optimize coverage and control.
The interaction of equipment and weather-related factors determines the potential for spray drift. The applicator and the grower are responsible for considering all these factors when making decisions.
