New foliar insecticide provides aphid control

November 30, 1999  By Bayer CropScience

April 27, 2011, Guelph, Ont – Concept® insecticide, one of the latest innovations from Bayer CropScience, has received registration and will be available to horticulture growers across Canada for the 2011 growing season.

“Concept is a broad-spectrum foliar insecticide that delivers quick knockdown and residual protection against soybean aphid and Japanese beetle, and suppression of bean leaf beetle in soybean crops,” explains Greg Good, portfolio manager of row crops with Bayer CropScience.

“Along with soybeans, Concept controls a broad range of pests in potato, tomato, blueberry and brassica vegetables (cole crops) such as cabbage,” says David Kikkert, portfolio manager of horticulture with Bayer CropScience.


Concept is an oil-based, solvent-free flowable co-formulation, combining two modes of action and active ingredients: imidacloprid and deltamethrin.

“The combination of these two active ingredients increases the number of insects controlled with one spray,” says Good. “Two different modes of action in one easy-to-use product is also a positive step forward for growers concerned about managing insecticide resistance.”

The patented O-TEQ® liquid formulation ensures that Concept is rainfast, acts quickly and stays on the leaves longer than other products.

Concept is available from Bayer CropScience retailers across Canada. The full product label is available at
