Union Fungicide SC is a broad-spectrum solution against a wide range of plant diseases in all cool- and warm-season turfgrasses. It combines two active ingredients, cyazofamid and azoxystrobin, to eliminate a wide range of common diseases. This product comes in a flowable suspension concentrate formula, making it easier to apply alone or may be alternatively used as a tank mix. It features long-lasting residual control against various diseases such as root rot, fairy ring, anthracnose, brown patch, gray leaf spot, pythium blight, root dysfunction, and damping-off. This fungicide is perfect for use on athletic fields, sod farms, parks, golf greens, residential lawns, commercial lawns, fairways, tees, and roughs. Packaged in a 2 1/2 gallon jug container.
This pesticide is toxic to mammals, fish, and aquatic invertebrates. Do not apply directly to water, or to areas where surface water is present or to intertidal areas below the mean high water mark. Runoff may be hazardous to aquatic organisms in neighboring areas. Do not contaminate water when disposing of equipment washwater or rinsate.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

DO NOT use clippings for animal feed.
OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING RESTRICTIONS WHEN SPRAYING IN THE VICINITY OF AQUATIC AREAS SUCH AS LAKES, RESERVOIRS, RIVERS, PERMANENT STREAMS, MARSHES OR NATURAL PONDS, AND ESTUARIES:
DO NOT apply within 100 feet of aquatic areas listed above.
DO NOT cultivate within 10 feet of an aquatic area to allow growth of a vegetation filter strip.
See Spray Drift Management section for further information.
Mixing and Spraying
Begin with clean spray equipment and add one-half of the required quantity of water to the spray or mixing tank and start agitation. Add the required quantity of fungicide and the tank-mix partner if applicable to the water and complete filling with water to the required total volume. Consult with your State Cooperative Extension Service for tank-mixing with other products. In general, follow the order beginning first with water-soluble packaging (wait for it to completely dissolve), wettable powders and water-dispersible granular products, liquid flowables and suspension concentrates and emulsifiable concentrates last. Maintain agitation throughout spraying. DO NOT allow spray mixture to remain in the tank overnight, or for long periods during the day without agitation.
It is the pesticide user’s responsibility to ensure that all products are registered for the intended use. Read and follow the applicable restrictions and limitations and directions for use on all product labels involved in tank mixing. Users must follow the most restrictive directions for use and precautionary statements of each product in the tank mixture.
The turf safety of all potential tank-mixes including additives and other pesticides has not been tested on all turf species and varieties. Before applying any tank-mixture not specifically prescribed on this label, safety to the target plant must be confirmed. This product is compatible with most commonly used fungicide, herbicide, insecticide, growth regulator and foliar nutrient products. However, the physical compatibility with all potential tank-mix partners has not been fully investigated. If tank mixing with other pesticides is desirable, conduct a jar test with the volumes and rates typically used for turfgrass application. Using a small container of water, add the proportionate amounts of the products: wettable powders and water-dispersible granular products first, then liquid flowables and emulsifiable concentrates last. After thoroughly mixing, let stand for at least 15 minutes. Look for signs of separation, globules, sludge, flakes, or other precipitates. Physical compatibility is indicated if the combination remains mixed or can be remixed readily.
The use of a soil penetrating adjuvant may improve the movement into the soil when irrigation after treatment is required for disease control.
Combinations with plant growth regulators (PGRs) may impact turf quality and reduce turf growth particularly during period of heat stress and high humidity.
TANK MIXING: This product may be used alone to control diseases or alternatively used in tank mix or sequentially with other registered fungicides or with other pesticides for use on golf course turf in accordance with the most restrictive of label limitations and precautions. Label dosage rates must not be exceeded. This product cannot be mixed with any product containing a label prohibition against such mixing.
When tank mixing with other products, it is the responsibility of the enduser/applicator to ensure that the tank-mix partner is registered in the state where the application is being made. Not all products are registered in all states; please verify state registration of tank mixed products in your state before selling, distributing, or using. It is the pesticide user’s responsibility to ensure that all products are registered for the intended use. Read and follow the applicable restrictions and limitations and directions for use on all product labels involved in tank mixing. Users must follow the most restrictive directions for use and precautionary statements of each product in the tank mixture.
UNION FUNGICIDE SC controls the listed fungal diseases on turfgrass. Thorough coverage is necessary to provide good disease control. Make no more spray solution than is needed for application. Avoid spray overlap, as plant injury may occur.
For best results, apply prior to disease development. Apply in 2 to 4 gallons of water per 1000 sq.ft. (90 to 180 gal per acre). When applied as a spot treatment, use 1 to 2 gal of water per 1000 sq.ft.
Use the shorter specified application interval and/or use the higher specified rate when prolonged favorable disease conditions exist. Under severe disease conditions, use the highest rate and shortest interval.
DO NOT apply more than two consecutive applications. Applications should be alternated with another registered fungicide with a different mode of action.
Establishing turfgrass from seed: This product is safe to use on newly planted turf seed — either before or after germination. The newly planted seed may be in a new stand or in overseeded turf.
