During 2015 and 2016 the blackleg fungus overcame the blackleg resistance of some Group A cultivars. These cultivars dropped from Moderately Resistant (MR) to Moderately Susceptible (MS) and all updated ratings are available in the 2017 Autumn Blackleg Management guide. In the lead up to the 2017 season, fungicide application […]

Blackleg monitoring results for all 2016 canola producing regions are now available. In 2016 cultivars representing each of the resistance groups were sown at 37 trials across Australia and monitored for levels of blackleg disease. These data indicate which resistance groups have higher levels of disease compared to the other resistance […]
Monitor crops for blackleg
Growers are usually encouraged to monitor for blackleg in the spring. However, in 2016 widespread, severe early blackleg leaf lesions have occurred across Australia’s canola growing regions.
The increased incidence of early disease is due to the following key factors:
continued leaf wetness driving the disease cycle;
the blackleg […]
In recent years, blackleg infection has affected the upper stems and branches of canola plants leading to yield loss as branches and pods on affected plants senesce prematurely causing yield loss. Steve Marcroft explains the factors researchers now believe are causing cankers on stems and branches of canola crops.

Blackleg is a fungal disease of canola that can cause severe yield loss. It is more severe in areas of intensive canola production as fungal spores are released from the previous year’s canola stubble and spread by wind and rain splash. With good […]
