The Aberhart Ag Solutions team are proud to have built a network of partners, our Trusted Applicators, throughout Saskatchewan and Manitoba who take the time to understand our client’s needs. In our latest news, we are thrilled to announce that Aberhart Ag is presenting a public webinar on Clubroot, featuring Clubroot expert, Dan Orchard of the Canola Council of Canada. Dan Aberhart will be our host with the most, as we take a deep dive into the challenges of this disease.
Clubroot Is A Challenge.
Clubroot is a serious soil-borne disease of cruciferous crops. In canola, it causes swellings or galls to form on the roots, which ultimately causes premature death of the plant. It is caused by a fungus-like protist called Plasmodiophora brassicae. Currently, there are no economical control measures that can remove this pathogen from a field once it has become infested. However, it is possible to curtail the spread of the pathogen and reduce the incidence and severity of the disease.
Aberhart Ag Solutions is taking proactive steps. We are introducing a high-quality discussion with an expert in the industry, Dan Orchard of the Canola Council of Canada.
This public webinar will take place:
- Friday, April 5th
- 8 AM Sask / 9 AM Manitoba
- REGISTRATION LINK: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_vGDtCm_jQ_GHq2dPIoGcrw
