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.

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.

Take a walk on the wild side with The Nature Conservancy of Canada

The field observations made by scientists at the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) are key to telling the story of conservation. On an average day they may encounter an array of wildlife species, bringing back stories of the mysteries and wonders of all nature’s creatures have to offer. Their ordinary field day can yield extraordinary stories about the species on our properties.

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.
