Spruzit packaging given a shake up
Spruzit contains naturally derived pyrethrins and oils in a formulation that targets the insects’ nervous system. Physical action delivers quick pest knockdown of a range of pests including caterpillars, aphids, spider mites, mealy bugs and whitefly at the egg, larval and adult stages.
Certis’ marketing manager Robert Lidstone explains that; "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," he says.
The smaller more convenient 3 litre packs are aimed at the protected crops sector allowing 0.25 - 0.5ha to be treated per pack dependent on the use rate, whilst the 10 litre pack is designed for use on outdoor broad acre crops.
