Welcome to the fifth episode in our series providing exclusive coverage of the Plant Health Summit, a conference put on by Top Crop Manager at the end of February. In this series, you can expect to hear about topics such as insect pest control, fertilization, plant growth regulators, and – in this episode – diseases.

Syama Chatterton, plant pathologist at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) Lethbridge Research and Development Centre, discusses her research on aphanomyces and root rots. Chatterton shares common misconceptions, what the latest research is revealing, and management considerations for producers, including which tests are showing efficacy in finding aphanomyces.

Dan Orchard, agronomy specialist with the Canola Council of Canada, and Curtis Henkelmann, a producer who farms in a clubroot region, discuss what they’ve learned about clubroot over the years and what other provinces can learn from Alberta.
