Cruiser® - Protecting crops from early season insects
CRUISER seed treatment is an innovative, environmentally safe insecticide, which provides instant, early-season, broad-spectrum pest control, thereby enhancing plant vigor and crop yield potential. CRUISER is a neonicotinoid seed treatment insecticide. Seeds treated include corn, cotton, cereals, sugar beet, oilseed rape (canola) and rice. As the plant grows, CRUISER is absorbed and distributed within the plant. The early-season pests, which suck and chew on the crop during its most vulnerable and tasty phase (the first 30 to 40 days of growth) are intoxicated when they try to feed on the treated crops. CRUISER also controls pests in the zone around the crops' root system.
Big is beautiful
CRUISER seed treatment maximizes the growth potential of the crop by enabling early season vigor. There is a visible increase in bloom and fruit development. The active ingredient performs well under a wide range of weather conditions, on many different crops. Benefits to the crop include greater density, height, root length, stem diameter, number of leaves per plant and a higher yield. After the 30- to 40-day protection period, crops are treated against mid- to late-season pests with conventional spray insecticides.

Zooming in on the problem - leaving nature in soft focus
CRUISER has a minimal impact on non-target organisms such as birds, because it is only present on the seed surface and inside the plant. It is very safe for users and to the environment.
