An ARC program to manage blackleg disease in canola has
saved canola farmers about $40 million a year over the past decade. In addition
to disease monitoring and seed testing, ARC scientists have conducted research
on cultural controls, including a fungicide, which was recently registered. New
research, jointly funded by the Alberta Canola Producers' Commission and the
Alberta Agriculture Research Institute, will be undertaken this year to develop
more environmentally friendly and economical biological controls.
