Control blackleg early to minimise canola yield losses.. Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA) plant pathologist Ravjit Khangura, who conducts Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) supported research in WA, said it was important to control blackleg early in the season to minimise yield losses... "Blackleg can attack the crop at any stage, but early seedling infections - especially up to the four or five-leaf stage - are the most damaging in terms of the development of severe stem cankers and yield loss," she said...

Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA) plant pathologist Ravjit Khangura said sclerotinia had recently appeared in canola crops in locations including Esperance and Frankland River... Dr Khangura said research funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) had shown that fungicides applied to canola crops at the 20 to 30 per cent flowering stage were usually most effective in reducing yield losses caused by sclerotinia... "Spores released from the fungal fruiting bodies (apothecia) initially infect canola petals, which subsequently drop into the plant canopy and can lead to leaf and stem lesions which cause lodging and yield loss," she said...
