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.

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.
