Canola Discovery Forum
The Canola Council of Canada is hosting the 2016 Canola Discovery Forum at the Fairmont Winnipeg from Tuesday, October 25 to Thursday, October 27.
The event is designed to identify challenges and opportunities in canola production that will lead the industry to its goal of average yields of 52 bushels per acre by 2025 as outlined in the Keep it Coming strategic plan. Discover research priorities and innovative, practical applications that can grow canola production, profitability and sustainability in Canada.
You can still contribute to the Saskatchewan disease survey by volunteering your fields for the survey!
The Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture is planning its annual canola disease survey. Part of the survey involves soil sampling and DNA-based testing for the presence of the clubroot causal agent. The DNA test detects the clubroot pathogen at levels lower than those required to cause visible symptoms in the field, thereby providing an early assessment of disease risk before yield loss due to the disease occurs. If you would like a field tested for clubroot as part of the Ministry’s survey please email email@example.com with your name, phone number, RM and Legal Land Location
