About this Product

Cruiser® Vibrance® Quattro is a ready-to-use, water-based seed treatment formulation for use in commercial seed treatment facilities or on-farm, for the control of certain insect pests and seed- and soil-borne diseases in cereal crops.

Product Benefits

  • Convenient, Ready-To-Apply (RTA) premix
  • Superior control of Fusarium and Rhizoctonia
  • Wireworm protection
  • Liquid formulation allows for on-farm application with no build-up in treater
  • Four fungicides, an insecticide, and the added benefit of Vigor Trigger® and Rooting Power™

Packaging

  • Each case contains 2x10 L jugs
  • 115 L drums
  • 450 L totes

Uses

For use on:

  • Barley
  • Oats
  • Rye
  • Triticale
  • Spring wheat
  • Winter wheat

For management of:

Insects:

  • Wireworms
  • European chafer (control on some crops, only when Cruiser Vibrance Quattro is mixed with Cruiser 5FS).

Diseases (controlled):

  • Seed rots - Fusarium, Pythium, Rhizoctonia, Penicillium and Aspergillus spp.
  • Seedling blight, root rot, and damping-off - seed- and soil-borne Fusarium spp. or Rhizoctonia spp.
  • Seedling blight, root rot, and damping-off - soil-borne Pythium spp.
  • Covered smut (Ustilago hordei)
  • False loose smut (Ustilago nigra)
  • True loose smut (Ustilago nuda)
  • Loose smut (Ustilago avenue, Ustilago tritici) in barley, sprint wheat, winter wheat, oats and triticale
  • Common bunt (Tilletia tritici), seed- and soil-borne in rye, spring wheat and winter wheat
  • Dwarf bunt (Tilletia controversa), seed- and soil-borne in rye and winter wheat

Diseases (suppressed):

Suppression means consistent control at a level that is not optimal but is still of commercial benefit.

Application Method

Seed Treatment

Application Information

  • Cruiser Vibrance Quattro is for use on-farm on barley, spring wheat, winter wheat, oats, rye, and triticale. This product can also be applied by commercial seed treaters (facilities and mobile treaters) using closed system transfer. Closed transfer includes closed mixing, loading, calibrating and closed treatment equipment.
  • Treatment equipment must provide uniform coverage of Cruiser Vibrance Quattro on the seed. Thorough seed coverage will offer the best protection of the seed from insect damage and disease. Uneven seed coverage may not give the desired level of disease/insect protection.
  • Treat seed in a well-ventilated area.
  • Thiamethoxam is a Group 4 insecticide. Do not make any subsequent application of a Group 4 insecticide (i.e., in-furrow or foliar application) following treatment with Cruiser Vibrance Quattro.
  • When seed is treated for post-planting protection against registered pests, Cruiser Vibrance Quattro will also provide protection during post-treatment storage of the seed against damage from many storage insect pests. Seed treated with thiamethoxam has been tested and found to be effective against rusty grain beetle, saw-toothed grain beetle, red flour beetle, rice weevil, lesser grain borer, European corn borer and Indian meal moth. It is recommended that seed with existing populations of storage pests be fumigated prior to treating and storage of that seed.

Use Restrictions

  • All seed treated with this product must be conspicuously coloured at the time of treatment.
  • No open transfer is permitted for commercial seed treatment (facilities and mobile treaters) of barley, spring wheat, winter wheat, oats, rye and triticale.
  • Avoid contamination of feed and foodstuffs.
  • Treated seed must not be used for food, feed or oil processing.
  • To prevent contamination, store away from food and feed.
  • For seed treated with Cruiser Vibrance Quattro, do not graze or feed livestock on treated areas for 45 days after planting.

Crop Safety

Do not plant any crop other than cereals, corn, soybeans, members of Crop Subgroup 6C (dried, shelled peas and beans), members of Crop Subgroup 20A (canola and rapeseed subgroup) or potatoes within 60 days to fields in which seeds treated with Cruiser Vibrance Quattro were planted.

Tank Mixes

  • For control of European chafer activity on wheat and barley, mix Cruiser Vibrance Quattro with Cruiser 5FS Seed Treatment to achieve a total use rate of 30 g of thiamethoxam per 100 kg seed.
  • When wireworm activity is high, Cruiser Vibrance Quattro can be tank mixed with Cruiser 5FS Seed Treatment to achieve a total use rate of 30 g of thiamethoxam per 100 kg seed.
  • Consult each product label for registered use rates and follow all label use instructions.
  • Read the label directions for each product and follow the most restrictive label precautions and limitations.

Technical Information

Chemistry Group

Group 4 insecticide; Group 3, Group 4, Group 7 and Group 12 fungicides.

Mode of Action

Cruiser Vibrance Quattro contains the active ingredients thiamethoxam, difenoconazole, sedaxane, metalaxyl-M (and S-isomer) and fludioxonil.

Metalaxyl m = Group 4 = phenylamide – targets RNA polymerase I

Fludioxonil = Group 12 = phenylpyrroles – affects signal transduction

Sedaxane = Group 7 = succinate dehydrogenase inhibitor – affects respiration

Difenoconazole = Group 3 = triazole – inhibits sterol biosynthesis

Thiamethoxam = Group 4A = neonicotinoid – affects nerve action

Resistance Management

  • Experience has shown that strains of fungus resistant to metalaxyl-M (and S-isomer) may develop. Failure to control the disease will result in crop damage and/or yield losses. Since the occurrence of the resistance cannot be foreseen, Syngenta Canada Inc. accepts no responsibility for any loss of, or damage to, crops resulting from the failure of Cruiser Vibrance Quattro to control the resistant fungus strains. If disease appears in a treated field, consult the government extension specialist immediately.
  • For resistance management, please note that Cruiser Vibrance Quattro contains Groups 3, 4, 7 and 12 and a Group 4 insecticide. Any fungal and (or) insect population may contain individuals naturally resistant to Cruiser Vibrance Quattro and other Groups 3, 4, 7 or 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 Vibrance Quattro or other Groups 3, 4, 7 and 12 fungicides, Group 4 insecticides with different groups that control the same pathogens/insect 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 sign of 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 disease problems in your area.
