Bayer CropScience has received registration for Concept insecticide, making it available to soybean and horticulture growers across Canada for the 2011 growing season.
“Concept is a revolutionary 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,” said Greg Good, portfolio manager, row crops with Bayer CropScience in a release.
“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, horticulture with Bayer CropScience.
Concept is the first insecticide to be available as an oil-based, solvent-free flowable co-formulation, combining two modes of action and active ingredients: imidacloprid and deltamethrin.
The company says the combination increases the number of insects controlled with one spray.
