FORMULATION & ACTIVE INGREDIENT: CRUISER SB is a flowable concentrate for seed treatment containing 600 g/litre thiamethoxam.

CRUISER SB contains thiomethoxam for control of aphid vectors of virus yellows and a range of foliar and soil pests attacking sugar beet and fodder beet seedlings

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
IMPORTANT: This information is approved as part of the Product Label. All instructions within this section must be carefully read in order to obtain safe and successful use of this product.

RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT
CRUISER SB contains thiamethoxam a neo-nicotinoid insecticide. There are no known cases of resistance to thiamethoxam or other neo-nicotinoid insecticides in the UK to date for any of the pests listed on this label. However, the possible development of resistance cannot be excluded or predicted and control may be reduced if strains of pest resistant to thiamethoxam or other neo-nicotinoids develop.
Use of this product should form part of a resistance management strategy. Subsequent foliar sprays should be made with a product containing a different active substance and from a different mode of action class.
Consult the (IRAG) website for further information on a particular management strategy for the targets in question.
Since the occurrence of resistance cannot be forecast, neither Syngenta UK Limited nor its distributors can accept responsibility for any loss or damage to crops caused by the failure of CRUISER SB to control resistant strains.

PESTS CONTROLLED
CRUISER SB is a broad spectrum treatment, containing the neo-nicotinoid insecticide thiamethoxam, for the control of aphid vectors of virus yellows and a range of foliar and soil pests attacking sugar beet and fodder beet seedlings (including springtails, millipedes, symphilids, beet leaf miner/mangold fly, pygmy beetle and flea beetle) and improves crop establishment by reducing damage by wireworms.
In situations where very high populations of soil pests are present, the level of protection given by CRUISER SB may be inadequate to achieve an optimum plant stand.

CROP SPECIFIC INFORMATION
Crops
Sugar beet and fodder beet
Timing
Before drilling
Rate of use
Apply 100 ml CRUISER SB per unit of seed (1 unit = 100,000 seeds)

Application
CRUISER SB must only be applied to sugar beet and fodder beet seed as part of the normal commercial pelleting process using special treatment machinery.
Agitate container thoroughly before use e.g., by rolling containers on a level floor bearing in mind the following warning. Containers of greater than 20 litres capacity should be handled only with mechanical assistance.

Storage after Treatment
Seed should be stored in a cool, dry, ventilated building. Ideally treated seed should be used in the season of treatment. It is not recommended to store CRUISER SB treated seed for longer than 18 months.

Seedbed Preparation And Drilling
Seed drills must be suitable for use with polymer-coated seeds. If in any doubt, refer to the drill manufacturer. Treatment with CRUISER SB does not alter the physical characteristics of pelleted seed and no change to standard drill settings should be necessary.
Prepare a firm, even seedbed. CRUISER SB is not known to have any adverse effect on seed germination or crop emergence but poor seed quality or seedbed conditions (waterlogged, capped, dry, fluffy or cloddy seedbeds) may result in delayed emergence and/or poor establishment. Similarly, avoid deep or shallow drilling which can adversely affect crop establishment and may reduce the level of pest control.

Herbicides
Herbicides containing the active ingredient lenacil should not be used pre-crop emergence on fields drilled with seed treated with CRUISER SB. Other approved herbicides may be applied pre-emergence of the crop. Approved herbicides may be used as recommended post emergence of the crop.

Seed spillages
In case of seed spillage, clean up as much as possible into the related seed sack and re-use the clean seed. Bury or remove the remainder completely.

After use
Dispose of product concentrate, empty containers and contaminated seed bags according to the “Code of Practice for using plant protection products” available from DEFRA. Do not re-use containers for any purpose.
