Keep Scouting Canola During Flowering

July 20, 2010

Sclerotinia scouting may have wrapped up, but the most valuable thing you can put in your canola field is still your footprint according to Alberta’s Provincial Oilseed Specialist Murray Hartman.

Murray says looking for signs of insects like Diamondback moths now, lets you know that you need to get back in the field when podding starts to see if control is warranted.

Pulling up plants at this time lets you know if wilting plants are a result of root maggots – or maybe its a sign of clubroot.

Sulfur deficiency is also something to be checking for at flowering time – are their blanks or discolouration?

Murray discusses what to look for and provides a provincial update on the canola crop.
