Sclerotinia can be one of the most destructive diseases in canola. It can cause significant yield reductions if left unmanaged.

What to consider when deciding to spray for sclerotinia

Target Yield

Target yield – Understanding yield targets will help determine the potential impact of sclerotinia and help quantify the value of a sclerotinia fungicide application

Commodity Price

Commodity price – High commodity prices further benefit the return on investment (ROI) when applying fungicides

Crop Rotation

Crop rotation – Seeding canola more frequently than every 1 in 3 years of a rotation or having a tight rotation with other host crops for sclerotinia (pulses) can increase risk

Weather Condition

Weather – Wet conditions create the ideal environment for sclerotinia development, but morning dew and the transition from hot days to cool nights can also create high humidity in the crop canopy

Sclerotinia fungicide return in canola across varying weather conditions.
