Abstract

Syngenta Crop Protection, Inc., recently received EPA approval for the use of Cruiser on corn seed (field, pop, seed, and sweet corn). The active ingredient in Cruiser, thiamethoxam, is a systemic insecticide in the neonicotinoid class of chemicals. Being a systemic insecticide, Cruiser is absorbed and distributed within the plant as it grows. An insect is exposed to a dose of insecticide when it feeds on the seed or young plant.
