GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Application

Treatment in small lots by the farmer

May be applied by shaking with seed in a tin, enclosed drum, plastic bag or cement mixer.

1. Premix CRUISER 350 FS with water to a total volume of not less than 5 mL nor more than 10

mL/kg seed.

2. Apply solution to seed and vigorously mix for 1 to 2 minutes.

Treatment of large seed lots by commercial seed treatment equipment

For large-scale seed treatment the product should be applied diluted with water in specialised seed

treatment equipment. As for all such seed treatments, a good flow and metering system for the initial

prepared solution is important. Depending on the type of seed treatment equipment, it may be

necessary to increase the recommended amount of water slightly in order to ensure an optimal flow of

the solution and an even treatment of seed.

Prepare the solution as follows:

1. Fill the solution tank with the required volume of water and mix with the appropriate volume of

CRUISER 350 FS. Total volumes of not less than 500 mL nor more than 1 L water/100 kg seed

are recommended.

2. Switch on the stirring system and stir.

Insecticide Resistance Warning

GROUP

4A

INSECTICIDE

For insecticide resistance management CRUISER 350 FS Insecticide Seed Treatment is a Group 4A

insecticide.

Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to CRUISER 350 FS and other Group 4

insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant

individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if CRUISER 350 FS or other Group 4

insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of CRUISER 350 FS on resistant individuals

could be significantly reduced. Since occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to

use, Syngenta Crop Protection accepts no liability for any losses that may result from failure of

CRUISER 350 FS to control resistant insects. CRUISER 350 FS may be subject to specific resistance

management strategies.

For further information contact your supplier, Syngenta Crop Protection representative or local

agricultural department agronomist.

Aphid Resistance Management

When cotton seed has been treated with CRUISER 350 FS, the first foliar insecticide spray must be

from a different insecticide group (ie not Group 4A).

PRECAUTIONS

DO NOT use treated seed for animal or human consumption.

DO NOT allow treated seed to contaminate grain or other seed intended for animal or human

consumption.

DO NOT feed treated seed, or otherwise expose, to wild or domestic birds.

Protection of Birds: Treated seed may be harmful to seed eating birds, and should be properly sown

and completely covered by soil. Excess seed is not to be left in areas accessible to birds. Any spillage

of treated seed which occurs either during the seed treatment process or in field operations must be

cleaned up immediately, preferably by recovery and re-use.

When treated seed is stored it should be kept apart from other grain and the bags or other containers

should be clearly marked to indicate the contents have been treated. Bags which have held treated

seed should not be used for any other purpose.

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK

DO NOT feed treated seeds to animals, including poultry.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the product or used containers.
