How to use the Canola Diagnostic Tool

Give the brand new online Canola Diagnostic Tool a pre-season test drive at www.canoladiagnostictool.ca. Start with a problem scenario that you encountered in a canola field in 2012, and work through the tool to see what potential causes it provides. Read the cause descriptions and “ways to confirm” to determine which cause is most likely. The tool will help growers and agronomists discover that certain symptoms can have many potential causes, and settling on the right course of action will depend on drilling down into the details. The Canola Diagnostic Tool links to relevant chapters in the new Canola Encyclopedia, the online and updated version of the old Canola Growers Manual.
