Why are flea beetles in canola important and how do I manage them?

Flea beetles are a major early-season pest of canola in Western Canada that can lead to severe damage, including reduced plant stand and uneven crop maturity, if left unmanaged. Containing the insecticide clothianidin, Vercoras® seed treatment provides base protection against flea beetles. For enhanced crucifer and striped flea beetle protection, as well as control of early-season cutworms, please chat with your local retail on other insecticide seed treatment top-up options for InVigor® hybrid canola.
