Clubroot

Clubroot is a soil-borne disease that infects cruciferous crops such as canola, mustard and vegetables. Infected plants develop galls in the roots, reducing the amount of water and nutrients that can be absorbed. This causes stunting, wilting and premature ripening of the plant. What can growers do about clubroot?

  • Practice crop rotation;
  • Scout canola fields regularly and stay alert for suspicious stunting, wilting, yellowing and premature ripening;
  • Check roots to confirm the presence of galls;
  • Control cruciferous weeds and volunteer canola or mustard;
  • Clean your equipment before moving it to another field as the disease is spread through movement of contaminated soil.
