CLUBROOT MANAGEMENT BEST PRACTICES Suggestions for using clubroot-resistant varieties as per the Canola Council of Canada

  • Picture of clubroot infected canola rootsSanitation. Preventing spread of the disease is important in the long-term control of this disease, even with clubroot-resistant varieties. Sanitation practices are essential for fields known to be infested with clubroot, and it is important to ensure that areas without clubroot are not infested as well.
  • Reduce spore/inoculum load:
    • Long canola rotations will help to prevent the buildup of clubroot resting spores and reduce the selection pressure for other potential virulent pathotypes that can eventually overcome the resistance. Growers in clubroot-infested areas should grow canola only once every four years in order to reduce soil inoculum levels and preserve existing clubroot resistance on their farms for as long as possible.
    • Control of canola volunteers and other weeds that act as hosts for clubroot will be essential to keep the selection pressure low by not allowing the disease to build up in non-canola years.
    • Scouting. Growers using clubroot-resistant varieties should scout their field regularly to see if there is any evidence of resistance breaking down. If the field is known to be infested with clubroot, then scouting should be very thorough at the end of the season. "Thorough" means examining the whole field to measure if there is an indication of resistance failing which, if present, would have a large impact on the future use of canola on that field. If the field is not known to be infested with clubroot, then scouting near the field entry points should occur once near the end of the growing season.

CLUBROOT-RESISTANT CANOLA GENETICS

As part of an integrated pest management strategy for clubroot disease in canola, InVigor L255PC, InVigor L135C and InVigor L241C have been developed to be resistant to the predominant clubroot pathotypes identified in Canada at the time these hybrids were registered.

In field environments, clubroot populations may contain or develop additional pathotypes, such as 5X, where InVigor L255PC, InVigor L241C, InVigor L135C, and other clubroot-resistant canola hybrids with similar resistance profiles could be susceptible.

New pathotypes may become dominant in the clubroot population if canola hybrids with similar resistance profiles are used repeatedly in the same field. To maximize the durability of genetic resistance in canola hybrids, appropriate integrated pest management strategies should be followed. Bayer supports the Canola Council of Canada’s agronomic recommendations when growing these InVigor hybrids.
