Staying on top of blackleg in canola crops

CANOLA growers are encouraged to assess blackleg disease in crops this spring to reduce risk in future seasons.

The Grains Research Development Corporation has released the 2017 Spring Blackleg Management Guide Fact Sheet, developed by the National Canola Pathology Project team, to help growers determine disease levels.

The guide outlines steps to manage blackleg and includes cultivar blackleg ratings and resistance groups for all canola cultivars, including new cultivars which will be available in 2018.
