Spruzit insecticide made available in different pack sizes

Friday, 14 May 2010

Broad spectrum insecticide Spruzit, active against biting and sucking pests, will soon be available in two new pack sizes - three and 10 litres replacing the current "one size fits all" five-litre container.

The smaller three-litre packs are aimed at the protected crops sector, allowing 0.25-0.5ha to be treated per pack dependent on the use rate, while the 10-litre pack is designed for use on outdoor broad acre crops.

Certis marketing manager Robert Lidstone said: "Following the approval of Spruzit for use through tractor-mounted hydraulic sprayers, broad acre outdoor applications are now a practical option for growers of fruit and vegetable crops. Having looked at the needs of both the protected and outdoor sectors, we concluded that each required a different pack size."

Spruzit contains naturally derived pyrethrins and oils in a formulation that targets the insects' nervous system.

It targets a range of pests including caterpillars, aphids, spider mites, mealy bugs and whitefly at the egg, larval and adult stages.
