Seasonal conditions and an increase in area planted to canola in 2013 meant the season was a bumper one for fungal diseases... Blackleg severity increased across all cultivars evaluated at blackleg monitoring sites in southern New South Wales and northern Victoria, and the mild winter followed by rainfall in July and August provided ideal conditions for sclerotinia... While the focus of the project is on the big-ticket items - blackleg and sclerotinia - it is also examining the impact of other diseases, including white leaf spot, alternaria and powdery mildew...

In summary, 20 trials have now recently been undertaken across a number of seasons and locations in NSW. None of them have demonstrated S responses in yield or oil %. This does not exclude deficiency and yield penalties from occurring but does highlight that the frequency and the likelihood is not high... Delaying any action that has the potential to cease grain fill will see more seeds achieve their maximum size and improve yield... In summary there was no 'concerning' level of seed loss observed at any trial or timing, correlating well with the yield data...
