An integrated disease management plan is important to maintain yield and profitability and can help protect Canada’s reputation as a supplier of high-quality canola, cereals and pulses. Diseases like blackleg in canola and fusarium head blight (FHB) in cereals may also create a market risk.
Protect your investment by following these disease management tips for all crops:
- Grow disease resistant varieties when available.
- Consider applying an appropriately timed fungicide when there is an elevated risk of disease.
- Plan crop rotations to manage disease.
- Plant clean seed and consider a seed treatment under high-risk conditions to improve plant stand and crop competitiveness.
- Control volunteer plants, weeds and other susceptible hosts of the disease.
- Use an integrated pest management approach.
