The International Clubroot Workshop, a gathering of clubroot researchers, is August 7-9 in Edmonton. Extension specialists, municipal staff, canola growers and anyone else interested in clubroot management are welcome to attend.
The scientific program has an international and Canadian focus on:
- Genetics and breeding
- Host-pathogen interactions
- Epidemiology and disease management
For the agronomy program, delegates will have the opportunity to see first-hand “research in progress” while touring the Crop Diversification Centre North research facility. This includes:
- Greenhouse tour – pathotyping and CCD testing with extra pots for plant pulling
- Research lab facility tour
- One-of-a-kind pathotype nursery tour – clubroot resistance cultivars and clubroot research trials that are underway from graduate students
- Henwood tour – liming study and canola research trial plots of graduate students
A second tour of a clubroot-infested west Edmonton field site will feature clubroot management strategies:
- Susceptible host garden
- Canola plot trials with a range of resistance
- Patch management demo
Researchers, agronomists and industry stakeholders will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.
