Did you use a sclerotinia prediction tool?

July 22, 2020 - Issue 19

CCC agronomy director Clint Jurke is looking for farmers who made the decision to spray or not spray fungicide for sclerotinia based on what a sclerotinia stem rot prediction tool – sclerotinia checklist, spore testing or weather station predictions – told them.

Clint wants to know if the tool used provided value? Answering this will require harvest time surveys and a comparison of yields. Check strips of untreated versus treated areas would be particularly valuable. If you can help him out, please contact Clint at jurkec@canolacouncil.org or send him a direct message on Twitter to @jurkeccc.
