“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 BayerCropScience.ca.
