Insecticides made from pyrethroids are known as alpha cypermethrin. There are eight Cypermethrin isomers, and a mix of only two isomers (1R Cis S and 1S Cis R isomers) can be found in it. Compared to Cypermethrin, it is two to three times more active in the field. Various crops benefit from its effectiveness against a variety of insects. A variety of insects can be controlled with alphacypermethrin, as it has both contact and stomach action on cereals, cotton, fruits, vegetables, flower crops, oilseeds, sugar beet, tea, etc.

DESCRIPTION :- Alpha cypermethrin is a synthetic pyrethroid insecticide. It is a racemic mixture of two isomers (1R Cis S and 1S Cis R isomers) out of the eight Cypermethrin isomers. It is two to three times more active than Cypermethrin under field conditions. It is effective on a wide range of insects in a variety of crops. Alphacypermethrin has contact and stomach action and can be used on cereals, cotton, fruits, vegetables, flower crops, oilseeds, sugar beet, tea etc. for the control of a variety of insects.
