DAFWA researcher Ravjit Khangura standing in a field of canola... Dr Khangura said the main control tactic was to reduce the frequency of host species, such as canola and lupins, and it was recommended growers avoid planting canola on paddocks with high sclerotinia levels during the past three years... "Previous research in WA's northern cropping region has shown that applying a single fungicide spray is often effective in reducing canola yield losses from sclerotinia when the crop is at the 15 to 30 per cent flowering stage (coinciding with the onset of spore release) and conditions are conducive to disease," she said...

Assess blackleg risk to canola yields before spraying crops.. Assess blackleg risk to canola yields before spraying crops Canola growers in the southern cropping region must determine the potential for significant yield losses caused by blackleg infection before investing in and applying post-emergent treatments... Key points contained in the fact sheet include: "It is important for growers to monitor crops each season so they know the extent of blackleg infection and can make more informed management decisions," Dr Marcroft said...

Leg-up for canola growers in minimising the risk of blackleg Growers are being equipped with an important tool in their quest to minimise the risk of blackleg - the most damaging disease of canola and juncea-canola in Australia... Industry experts and the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) have developed a Risk Assessor to help growers make the right choices prior to or at sowing this coming season in order to reduce the risk of blackleg... Growers are encouraged to use the Risk Assessor to determine if a paddock presents a high risk situation and what practices can be changed to reduce yield loss caused by blackleg...

The project, together with its sister project based out of Tamworth with New South Wales Agriculture (NSW Ag), has underscored the growing area of canola in the northern grains region... Results from rotation experiments in northern NSW involving canola showed higher yields of wheat following brassica crops than those after either winter cereals or chickpeas, supporting results from southern Australia that the brassica crops are actively controlling cereal diseases... Survey results collected for this project suggest that a major motivation for growers to grow canola is to control problems of root diseases in winter cereals...

Research probes profitability of canola systems.. Caption: CSIRO-led research under the GRDC project 'Achieving stable and high canola yield across the rainfall zones of WA' is continuing in 2015... "In most areas of the WA grainbelt, the question for growers becomes - do I use hybrids simply as a weed control tool due to their greater vigour, even if they're not necessarily making me more money in the short-term," he said...

Canola growers are being urged to recheck label directions for products containing haloxyfop following changes to labels that clarify the correct timing for applying the herbicide... Herbicides containing haloxyfop as the active ingredient (such as Verdict 520, Asset or Inquest ) are the main choice among most growers... If this group of herbicides is used in canola and other oilseeds, it must not be applied after the eight-leaf stage of the crop, or if stem elongation has started before the eight-leaf stage...
