Canola: Scouting and managing blackleg

Canola: Scouting and managing blackleg

Western Canada has seen an increase in the incidence and severity of blackleg over the last few years. Where blackleg is not managed carefully, it can cause increased lodging, slower harvesting and yield losses. Blackleg can reduce yields on large sections of canola fields and increase the risk for repeated blackleg infestations on future crops.

Today’s tech-savvy farmers leverage more info for better profitability

Today’s tech-savvy farmers leverage more info for better profitability

Tool also positions farmers to stay ahead of the curve on consumer trends

During the course of any growing season, Canadian growers get a lot of information about their farm. This includes crop plans, grain inventories, tracking of crop inputs, spray history, soil sampling, yield maps, contracts, as well as the farm’s accounting and books. All of this contributes to the bottom line and managing all this information is an increasingly important part of any successful farming operation.

Preventative fungicide application is key to protecting canola from Sclerotinia

Preventative fungicide application is key to protecting canola from Sclerotinia

Even with the drier weather experienced in many regions of Western Canada last season, the need to plan and preventatively apply fungicides to control key diseases such as Sclerotinia is still necessary for 2016.

High potential for the development of Sclerotinia remains across Western Canada, as many broadleaf crops – including lentils, soybeans, peas and canola – are all hosts for the disease.

Evolution of fungicides in Eastern Canada

Evolution of fungicides in Eastern Canada

Fungicide use in Eastern Canada has picked up momentum over the past several years. Ten years ago, fungicides were not used often, if at all, and were mainly a weather-dependent disease control strategy. Fungicides were often an afterthought and many growers would selectively incorporate a fungicide based on the weather that year. As time went on and disease pressure evolved, fungicide use increased and growers began to see more consistent disease control, standability and plant health. Today, fungicides have evolved to offer more than just disease control.

Feature Article

Growers in Western Canada know an integrated approach to managing Fusarium Graminearum includes using clean, disease-free seed, seeding varieties less susceptible to disease, testing for germination and vigour, and incorporating a broad-spectrum fungicide seed treatment. Fusarium Graminearum has had a major economic impact and growers should be aware of the ways to manage it.
