Determining Disease Impact Before Harvest

August 27, 2014

With canola swathing underway across Western Canada, now is the time for growers to assess the toll that diseases have taken on the crop.

The “what to look for” list at this time includes the main suspects: blackleg, sclerotinia and clubroot.

In this episode of the Canola School, Keith Gabert of the Canola Council of Canada describes how to go about checking for these diseases.

Gabert also discusses how to decide whether a canola field is mature, or only showing “sun scald.”
