Disease forecasting for Sclerotinia white stem rot in canola

Description

A round five million acres of canola are now grown annually in Alberta. Sclerotinia white stem rot is one of the most destructive diseases of this crop. To help canola growers predict outbreaks of sclerotinia white stem rot, a disease forecast system was developed. The forecast system is a checklist that assists growers to make a decision on the need for applying a foliar fungicide. The check list came into being as a consequence of disease control trials carried out in 1981 and 1982
