Introducing BUTEO™ start, a powerful new seed treatment that gives you immediate and effective protection against early flea beetle pressure.
Protects your canola from striped and crucifer flea beetles while at its most vulnerable.
Powerful protection allows for quicker canopy, more uniform flowering and better maturity.
Rapid uptake and translocation, even in dry conditions.
Works well in combination with leading base seed treatment options.
In trials, BUTEO start demonstrated superior performance versus other industry seed treatments. Canola treated with BUTEO start showed stronger plant stands and bigger, fuller canopy at the flowering stage.
Make BUTEO start next season’s MVP.
BUTEO start is specifically designed to protect your canola at its most vulnerable point, from cotyledon to three leaf stage, delivering unparalleled protection against striped and crucifer flea beetles.
Early flea beetle damage can cause poor plant stands, delayed maturity and reduced yields. BUTEO start gives your canola the chance to develop stronger – leading to quicker canopy, more uniform flowering and better maturity.
The protective power of BUTEO start is effective and immediate. Its Group 4D insecticide (flupyradifurone) delivers rapid uptake and systemic translocation from cotyledon to leaf margins, encouraging stronger plant stands - even in dry conditions and areas of high flea beetle pressure.

One of these canola field was treated with BUTEO start. Guess which one? Flea beetle spraying my Prosper fields. Sitting back and watching my canola grow with BUTEO [start]. #BUTEOstartadvantage @Bayer4CropsCA
Things are looking great. Nice piece of mind with some great seed treatment. #BUTEOstartadvantage
I’m excited to see how much ahead the DKTF 97 CRSC treated with BUTEO start will be in a couple of weeks. #BUTEOstartadvantage #waitandsee @DEKALB_Canada @Bayer4CropsCA

In Western Canada, yield losses of about 10% from flea beetles are common 😳. Protect your canola seed with powerful BUTEO start seed treatment! Picture - seeded May 7. Prosper Evergol - left, Prosper Evergol BUTEO start right. #BUTEOstartadvantage @Bayer4CropsCA

Checked out a field of DKTF 99C treated with BUTEO start to find these healthy plants then walked across a tree line to look at competitor variety without it to find flea beetles feasting! @CroneCraig @truenorthfree @reganferguson how’s your trials/fields looking? #BUTEOstartadvantage
Flea beetles played a role in what’s happening in this field. BUTEO start anyone? 🤔 @Bayer4CropsCA

Back at my BUTEO start trial today. Time will tell but it’s looking like there’s a #BUTEOstartadvantage!

Suns out bugs out.. Flea beetles are out and they are hungry. BUTEO start has your back. Here is the #BUTEOstartadvantage in action today. @DEKALB_Canada @Bayer4CropsCA

BUTEO [start] showing it’s 💪🏻. Everything else not so much.
Flea beetles are out chomping again in this warm weather. This field shows the #BUTEOstartadvantage @Bayer4CropsCA
We’re really impressed with the #BUTEOstartadvantage from @Bayer4CropsCA! You can see the volunteer canola has been getting munched on by flea beetles but the canola treated by BUTEO start is almost untouched. #westcdnag #ABag

BUTEO start still showing up at this stage of the game! Thx @MegDesjardins for the great photos!
Prosper EverGol, with its three fungicidal active ingredients, protects your canola against the most damaging diseases. Get peace of mind by combining Prosper EverGol’s disease and insect control with BUTEO™ start’s superior flea beetle protection.
Protecting your canola from sclerotinia is essential to maximizing yield. Proline’s unique mode of action effectively controls sclerontinia, putting you on a path to maximum yields and improved profitability.
The TruFlex canola system allows for the control of a broad spectrum of weeds like cleavers, foxtail barley and wild buckwheat, and can help enable season-long dandelion control. That means cleaner fields for an easier, smoother harvest and higher yield potential.
