Seedling disease complex with Krista Anderson, Mark Belmonte and Autumn Barnes

June 3, 2020

Pythium species, Fusarium species and Rhizoctonia solani – the “three amigos” – can cause seed rots, root rots and stem decay on young canola plants. Seed treatments are generally pretty good, but Krista Anderson from Bayer CropScience, Mark Belmonte from University of Manitoba and Autumn Barnes from the CCC explain the factors that can increase risks. They also describe management options (including rotation) that can keep these pathogens of the soil microbiome from rising up.
