Redigo Deter

Redigo Deter is a combination insecticide and fungicide seed treatment that's safe for use on all winter cereal varieties; not just wheat and barley, but oats, rye and triticale. It can help you maximise healthy crop establishment by reducing slug damage in the early growth stages and providing extended control against Barley Yellow Dwarf Virus (BYDV). We need your input to stop the proposed EC ban on neonicotinoids. Save our seed treatments – act now.

A major benefit of Redigo Deter is that it reduces the need for other treatments such as foliar sprays and slug pellets. This makes it much easier for you to manage your workload in the autumn. Redigo Deter maximises establishment of seedlings and reduces autumn losses by minimising pest and virus damage.

Main advantages

  • Safe for use on all winter cereal varieties planted between 1 July and 31 December
  • Increases crop stands
  • Reduces the number of foliar insecticides or slug pellets
  • Provides additional activity on minor or regional pests such as wireworm

Getting the best from Redigo Deter

Quality of application is crucial to making sure that you get the best out of Redigo Deter. Using a Bayer-approved treater will ensure that you receive the maximum benefit from your investment in the product.

Apply your seed at a rate no lower than 125 kg/ha. Rates of application lower than this will mean that you have to take much greater care with following treatments.

Important things to remember

  • Seed treated with Redigo Deter must not be sown between 1 January and 30 June
  • Make sure that the seed is covered by soil and drilled to a uniform depth (around 4 cm)
  • Always store Redigo Deter safely
  • Clear up any spillages immediately
  • Remember that Redigo Deter prevents slug damage to the seed but not the leaf
  • If aphid fly-in is heavy or prolonged, a follow-up treatment will be required
  • Choose Deter as a ‘straight’ insecticide seed treatment co-applied with any suitable fungicide

Redigo Deter as part of a programme

Where slugs are a risk, we recommend that you also use a good-quality slug pellet at early crop emergence.
