It also describes the workings of SWMTEP, but the Intricate strate-gies under the many headings of the SWMTEP II document make comprehensive treatment impossible.

Cypermethrin - Environmental Health Criteria 82
United Nations Environment Programme, World Health Organization, International Labour Organisation

Cypermethrin was initially synthesized in 1974 and first marketed in 1977 as a highly active synthetic pyrethroid insecticide, effective against a wide range of pests in agriculture, public health, and animal husbandry. In agriculture, its main use is against foliage pests and certain surface soil pests, such as cutworms, but because of its rapid breakdown in soil, it is not recommended for use against
soil-borne pests below the surface.
