Insecticide - Cyromazine

NOMENCLATURE Common name cyromazine (BSI, draft E-ISO, (f) draft F-ISO, ANSI) IUPAC name N-cyclopropyl-1,3,5-triazine-2,4,6-triamine Chemical Abstracts name N-cyclopropyl-1,3,5-triazine-2,4,6-triamine CAS RN [66215-27-8]
Insect growth regulator with contact action, which interferes with moulting and pupation. When used on plants, action is systemic: applied to the leaves, it exhibits a strong translaminar effect; applied to the soil, it is taken up by the roots and translocated acropetally.


Control of Diptera larvae in chicken manure by feeding to the poultry or treating the breeding sites. Also used to control flies on animals. Used as a foliar spray to control leaf miners (Liriomyza spp.) in vegetables (e.g. celery, melons, tomatoes, lettuce), mushrooms, potatoes and ornamentals, at 75-225 g/ha; also used at 190-450 g/ha in drench or drip irrigation.
