Assessing Stands for Root Rot Damage

May 29, 2013

While seeding may be running a wee bit behind average for many, the long days and warmer soil can mean crops pop up quite quickly. In Manitoba, many canola fields are pushing through in about a week, which makes now a great time to start scouting for a number of things, like flea beetle feeding and root rot pressure.

In this episode of the Canola School, Holly Derksen, field crop pathologist with Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives, lists where to look for symptoms of various root rots. She also explains what you’re looking for, when to scout and why you may or may not be seeing heavy pressure this spring.
