Fire prevention tips to give you a silent night

Fungicide resistance: Learning from other countries

Fungicide resistance: Learning from other countries

For decades, Canadian farmers have heard about the threat of herbicide resistance, and in some cases have adapted their farm practices to manage it first-hand. We hear far less about fungicide resistance.

Fungicide resistance has been found in other parts of the world, especially in Northern Europe. In Europe, the most important cereal diseases are Septoria tritici blotch (Septoria) of wheat, rusts and powdery mildew. Septoria has developed widespread resistance cases to the strobilurin fungicides, resulting in a significant shift to the triazoles.

New Clearfield canola varieties for 2016 season

New Clearfield canola varieties for 2016 season

Each growing season brings challenges and many of these challenges are unique to each farm operation and regional in nature. With tighter canola rotations, this list grows to include insect, weed and disease pressure as well as variable moisture and fertility conditions all working together to reduce yields.

Herbicide-tolerant canola systems offer growers a tool in managing weed (and ultimately disease) pressure resulting in a higher yielding canola crop.
