The Rapid Spread of Clubroot
Clubroot is a soil-borne disease that affects cruciferous crops. Most importantly for Western Canadian farmers, it causes galls to grow on the roots of canola plants, choking out nutrients from the plant, ultimately killing it. Since the disease was found in Alberta in 2003, it has continued to spread across the Prairies.Read More

All canola growers are aware of blackleg but its impact can sometimes be under-estimated. Although genetic resistance and general understanding of the disease has improved in recent years, there were still some significant gaps that made it difficult to manage the disease with any precision. ‘Grow an ‘R’ rated variety and you should be fine’ used to be the best standard recommendation when it came to variety selection. Fortunately, now there are more tools that are available to growers that are better at keeping the disease in check, to realize even bigger gains.Read More
Recently, InVigor canola sent a marketing piece to farmers in Western Canada. It looked like this:
Inside there are summaries of their Demonstration Strip Trial (DST) trials from 2017, including comparisons of CS2000, the clubroot resistant hybrid from CANTERRA SEEDS.
It's not surprising that BASF sees CS2000 as the hybrid to beat. It's been a top product in the clubroot region of Alberta since its launch. The combination of yield, maturity and unique disease resistance simply cannot be beat.
But when we take a closer look at the yield data they included, we are concerned about the way CS2000 is being represented.Read More
Canola harvest will be happening soon, and farmers are looking for ways to get as much of their crop in the bin as possible. The traditional approach to accomplish this has been to swath at 60% seed colour change (SCC). Any earlier, and you could lose yield, any later and you can also lose yield – seems like a pretty narrow window! But as many growers can attest, this 60% rule is more art than science. Read More
Today, CANTERRA SEEDS is announcing plans to launch a TruFlex™ canola with Roundup Ready® Technology hybrid to the market for the 2019 growing season.Read More
It’s that time of year again where growers are brushing up on their agronomy to help increase yield, minimize costs and maximize ROI. One topic that many like to refresh on around this time is seeding rate.Read More
What are the Canola Performance Trials?
The CPT or Canola Performance Trials are a grower-funded, third-party testing initiative that’s regarded as one of the best sources for unbiased data on the most popular canola varieties on the market. The CPTs have been published for many years, and growers have made it known that they value this type of data and would like it to continue. In a 2015 survey, 90% of respondents said data from an independent third-party source was either somewhat or very important to them.Read More
