The National Brassica Pathology Working Group, comprising pathologists, agronomists, chemical companies and canola breeders from across Australia, unilaterally shared concern at a recent meeting in Melbourne that growers would potentially face serious risk of crop failure due to blackleg if attempting to grow canola on canola... Growers are urged not to risk the long-term viability of the canola industry by sowing canola on canola," said Dr Marcroft, on behalf of the National Brassica Pathology Working Group... Dr Marcroft, who has been addressing GRDC grains research Updates in the southern region about the blackleg scenario, says growers can use the Risk Assessor to determine if their paddocks are in a high risk situation, and what practices could be changed to reduce yield loss from blackleg.

Optimising canola profitability through new understandings.. Leader of the South Australian component, Port Lincoln-based Andrew Ware of the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI), says despite the success of canola in Australian cropping systems, significant gaps remain in the underlying knowledge of canola physiology and agronomy... "Although growers recognise the high profit potential and the farming system benefits of canola, there remains a perceived risk of growing canola largely due to the high level of inputs required, such as seed, nitrogen fertiliser, sulphur fertiliser and windrowing," Mr Ware said...
