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.

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.

Fire prevention tips to give you a silent night

The holiday season is one of the most joyful times of the year for many families. But it’s also one of the peak periods for accidental home fires, partly due to the increased use of candles, heaters, tree lights, even cooking (none of which mix well with several glasses of eggnog!).
