Choose a cultivar with adequate blackleg resistance for your region... For individual site results consult the NVTonline website... Background: Blackleg disease can be minimised by a number of factors including sowing cultivars with high blackleg resistance, avoiding sowing in close proximity to last year's stubble and applying fungicides (see the current Blackleg Management Guide for details www.grdc.com.au)...

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...

Author : Sharon Watt Oilseeds disease authority Dr Steve Marcroft says severe early blackleg disease infection in 2016 could be attributed to the combination of three factors - wet weather, breakdown of cultivar resistance and the onset of fungicide resistance... A combination of factors has led to severe early infection of blackleg disease in this year's canola crops in southern Australia (South Australia, Victoria and southern New South Wales)... "Normally with blackleg we tell farmers to monitor their crops at end of season to see how much stem canker they have - it's quite unusual for the disease to be striking young crops so severely at this time of the year," said Dr Marcroft, whose research is supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC)...

Blackleg and its management has become an important issue for canola in the coming seasons... As most of the canola cultivars, irrespective of the level of their adult plant resistance, are susceptible to infection by the fungus at the seedling stage (may be termed as 'seedling susceptibility window') and consequent canker formation the timing of ascospore release in relation to the onset of adult plant resistance provides information on the risk of blackleg... The risk of blackleg appears to be both location and season specific...

Crop disease management in water limited environments A feature of cropping enterprises in the water limited environments of the northern and central agricultural regions of WA is the intensive cereal rotations used to maintain profitability and manage weeds... The project will develop disease management recommendations for intensive cereal rotations to enable growers to minimise the impact of foliar and root diseases on cereal yields... Maintaining market access Changes to the World Trade Organisation legislation now require that countries participating in international trade, such as Australia, must prove that specific grain pests and diseases exotic to importing countries are known not to occur in the exporting country...
