SITRINE is an emulsifiable concentrate formulation containing 100 g/l (11% w/w) cypermethrin
SITRINE is a broad spectrum contact insecticide for the control of agricultural and horticultural insect pests


Winter wheat, winter barley, winter oats, rye, triticale
Pest: Aphids vectors of BYDV
Timing/Method: If aphids carrying BYDV persist into the spring on winter crops, a follow up treatment up to the end of tillering may be necessary. Early treatment will give better results. Early and late sown spring crops may be infected with aphids carrying BYDV. For crops at risk, spray at the 2 to 4 leaf stage (GS 12-14).
Pest: Aphids in summer
Timing/Method: Spray if threshold levels of aphids in the ear are reached or upon professional advice
Rate: 250ml/ha in 200lt water per ha

Wheat, winter and spring, Barley, winter and spring, Oats, winter and spring, Triticale and winter rye
Pest: Aphids vectors of BYDV
Timing/Method: HIGH BYDV risk areas Crops drilled before mid September, spray in mid October or upon finding aphids in the crop. Crops drilled after mid September to mid October, spray end of October to the end of November AVERAGE BYDV risk areas Spray end-October to end of November if 5% of barley plants or 10% of wheat plants are infested with aphids or upon professional advice
Rate: 250ml/ha in 200lt water per ha

Root Crops (Potato (seed and ware), sugar beet, fodder beet, mangolds)
Pest: Cutworms
Timing/Method: Spray according to official warnings at the egg hatch stage. Repeat 10 - 14 days later
Rate: 250ml/ha in 600-1000lt water per ha

Winter Oilseed Rape
Pest: Cabbage stem flea beetle
Timing/Method: Adults: Spray as soon as a severe attack occurs Larvae: Spray in late October/November when 5 or more larvae are found per plant. Egg hatch may be delayed by inclement weather in some years. Repeat, if necessary, in the spring, but before flowering
Pest: Rape winter stem weevil
Timing/Method: Some control of this pest is obtained coincident with applications to control cabbage stem flea beetle, but for more specific control, spray in late November in areas subject to attack or as soon as eggs or larvae are found
Rate: 250ml/ha in min 300lt water per ha Add an non-ionic wetter at the recommended rate

Field Bean
Pest: Pea moth With coincidental partial control of pea aphid
Timing/Method: Spray in April/May at the onset of feeding (leaf notching) by adult weevils. This treatment will reduce the number of eggs laid, but will not control larvae in the root nodules
Rate: 250ml/ha in 200lt water per ha

Pest: Pea and bean weevil
Timing/Method: Time treatments to pea crops in flower according to official warnings or counts in pheromone traps. A maximum of two applications may be made to peas harvested dry, with a 10 - 14 day interval between both applications. Only one application may be made to vining peas. Avoid spraying flowering crops in the heat of the day when bees may be active
Rate: 250ml/ha in 400 - 600lt water per ha

Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Cabbage, Cauliflower
Pest: Caterpillar Whitefly
Timing/Method: Spray as soon as pest is seen. Repeat as necessary Gives coincident partial control of mealy aphid
Rate: 250ml/ha in 400 - 600lt water per ha Add an authorised non-ionic wetter at the recommended rate

Pest: Tortrix moth Winter moth Aphid, Apple sucker † Sawfly Capsid Codling moth Summer tortrix
Timing/Method: Spray at green cluster Spray at green cluster Spray at 80% petal fall Spray just before the earliest eggs hatch (mid/late June). Repeat after 3 weeks or as indicated by moth traps
Rate: 140 -280ml/ha in 200lt water per ha 280ml/ha in 200lt water/ha. † Use 350ml/ha if apple sucker is a problem 280ml/ha in 200lt water per ha

Tomato (protected) and Pepper (protected)
Pest: White fly Leaf Miner
Timing/Method: Apply when pests are first seen. Maximum 3 applications with a 10 days interval.
Rate: 500 – 750ml/ha

Pest: Pear Sucker
Timing/Method: Spray at bud burst to white bud Spray post blossom if suckers have become numerous and repeat 14 days later if necessary
Rate: 350ml/ha in 1000lt water
Pest: Capsid and tortrix moth
Timing/Method: Spray post-blossom if necessary
Rate: 280ml/ha in 200lt water

READ ALL OTHER SAFETY PRECAUTIONS AND DIRECTIONS FOR USE BEFORE USE. TO AVOID RISKS TO MAN AND THE ENVIRONMENT, COMPLY WITH THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE. Add concentrate to water as required and agitate. For high volume recom mendations on fruit, apply just short of run off (approximately 1000 l/ha). For root crops and Brassicas, apply 600 l water/ha. For other crops, apply a low volume of water (approximately 200 l/ha). Sitrine is not phytotoxic when used as recommended and is compatible with a wide range of products. Sitrine does not taint brassicas and peas when applied up to ten days before harvesting. However, the processors should be consulted before application. Sitrine acts by contact, therefore ensure thorough spray cover. Always avoid spraying under stress conditions.

Knapsack rate (based on 250ml of Sitrine per ha in 200lt water per ha
General use - 1.25ml/litre of water treating 40m² - (Hence, if using a 20lt knapsack, you need to add 25ml of Sitrine and this will treat 800m²)
