About this Product

Watch your pulse crops grow faster and stronger
 
Cruiser Maxx® Vibrance® Pulses seed treatment combines three contact and systemic fungicides plus an effective insecticide to protect your peas and lentils from insects and diseases that affect stand establishment and yield. And when the Vigor Trigger® effect meets Rooting Power™, you get stronger, faster-growing plants both above and below the ground.
Cruiser Maxx Vibrance Pulses is a combination of Cruiser 5FS and Vibrance Maxx or Vibrance Maxx RFC (sold separately).
 
Why use a seed treatment to protect your pulse crops from insect pests?
Insect pests - like pea leaf weevil in peas, and wireworms in lentils - can severely limit growing success. The best way to maximize yield potential in fields infested with pea leaf weevil is with a seed treatment. There are no foliar treatments for wireworm, and so seed treatments are the only viable option if crops require protection.
 

Product Benefits

  • The broad-spectrum seed and soil-borne disease protection of Vibrance Maxx plus the early season insect protection of Cruiser® 5FS insecticide
  • Improved yield potential due to improved plant stands, root systems, uniformity and plant health
  • Systemic activity that protects growing seedlings from both insects and diseases.
  • Safe to be used with rhizobium-based inoculants. Please check with inoculant manufacturers for details prior to use.
  • Improved emergence and stand establishment when planting in cool soils

Use Restrictions

  • For use in commercial seed treatment facilities or on-farm with closed transfer system only
  • Do not use treated seed for food or feed
  • Do not graze or feed livestock on treated areas for 60 days after planting
  • If re-cropping is required, refer to the product labels for restrictions.

Tank Mixes

Cruiser Maxx Vibrance Pulses is compatible with Rhizobium based inoculants. Please check with inoculant manufacturers for details prior to use.

Technical Information

Chemistry Group

Group 4 insecticide; Group 4, Group 7 and Group 12 fungicides

Mode of Action

Thiamethoxam, the active ingredient in Cruiser, moves systemically throughout the plant and protects against target pests through stomach activity. Once absorbed through feeding, Cruiser interferes with the receptors in an insect that transmit the message to feed. As a result, the insect stops feeding and the plant is protected.

Fludioxonil, Metalaxyl-M and Sedaxane are the fungicide active ingredients in Cruiser Maxx Vibrance Pulses.

Metalaxyl m = Group 4 = phenylamide – targets RNA polymerase I
Fludioxonil = Group 12 = phenylpyrroles – affects signal transduction
Sedaxane = Group 7 = succinate dehydrogenase inhibitor – affects respiration
Thiamethoxam = Group 4A = neonicotinoid – affects nerve action

 

Resistance Management

For resistance management, please note that Cruiser Maxx Vibrance Pulses Seed Treatment contains Group 4, Group 7 and Group 12 fungicides and a Group 4 insecticide.  Any fungal and (or) insect population may contain individuals naturally resistant to Cruiser Maxx Vibrance Pulses Seed Treatment and other Group 4, Group 7 or Group 12 fungicides and Group 4 insecticides.  A gradual or total loss of pest control may occur over time if these fungicides/insecticides are used repeatedly in the same fields.  Other resistance mechanisms that are not linked to site of action but specific for individual chemicals, such as enhanced metabolism, may also exist.  Appropriate resistance management strategies should be followed.

To delay insecticide and fungicide resistance:

Where possible, rotate the use of Cruiser Maxx Vibrance Pulses Seed Treatment or other Group 4, Group 7 and Group 12 fungicides and Group 4 insecticides with different groups that control the same pathogens/pests.

Fungicide and insecticide use should be based on an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program that includes scouting, historical information related to pesticide use and crop rotation and considers cultural, biological and other chemical control practices.

Monitor treated fungal and insecticide populations for resistance development.  If disease continues to progress after treatment with this product, do not increase the use rate. Discontinue use of this product, and switch to another fungicide and insecticide product with a different target site of action, if available.

Contact your local extension specialist or certified crop advisors for any additional pesticide resistance-management and (or) IPM recommendations for specific crops and pathogens or pest problems in your area.

For further information or to report suspected resistance, contact Syngenta Canada Inc. at 1-87-SYNGENTA (1-877-964-3682).
