sclerotinia stem

Catalogue: Ground Cover
Monitoring canola crops for blackleg and sclerotinia is essential for making informed decisions about managing these diseases.. The Blackleg Management Guide fact sheet available on the GRDC website describes how to monitor crops and lists all the management practices available.. Dr Lindbeck says foliar fungicides need to be considered in districts at high risk of disease development (areas where disease frequently occurs and where canola has a long flowering period and there is reliable spring rainfall)...

Canola crops in NSW and WA grown in high rainfall areas should be monitored closely for sclerotinia stem rot... Consult the Managing Sclerotinia Stem Rot in Canola guide for further information... Research in Australia and Canada has shown that the relationship between the presence of the pathogen (as infected petals) and development of sclerotinia stem rot is not very clear due to the strong reliance on moisture for infection and disease development...

Plan canola rotations to stop sclerotinia stem rot this season.. Dr Khangura said this was due to seasonal conditions causing overlapping of flowering time and coinciding spore release events with flowering in early and late maturing varieties... Other research into sclerotinia in WA will focus on: determining yield losses from disease; continuing work into the efficacy and profitability of crop management practices and fungicide use and timing; and an ongoing assessment of spore release, petal infection and stem rot levels to improve epidemiological knowledge...
