Clubroot continues to spread in Cavalier, County canola fields. Langdon Research Extension Center Cropping Systems Specialist Leslie Lubenow says there are only two things canola growers can do to limit the disease: rotate crops and select the right genetics. “If you have club root in your field, we’d like you to rotate three to five years,” she says. “Farmers should also be using a resistant variety. If your neighbors have clubroot and it’s not in your fields, you can go ahead and start using resistant genetics as well.”
