Agroclimate Impact Reporter

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) has created an application for farmers to report on how weather and climate conditions are affecting their farm operations. The Agroclimate Impact Reporter (AIR) is an online tool for the collection, integration and display of agroclimate impact information across Canada.

Impact reports can be submitted anonymously through the website. The information provided by these impact reports complement other types of weather and cimate datat available and play a valuable role in helping AAFC evaluate climate related risks to agriculture.

Please follow the link to www.agr.gc.ca/air to make a report or to find out more information.

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.

For more information, please visit www.clubroot.ca or call the Agriculture Knowledge Centre at 1-866-457-2377.
