Blackleg is a common yet economically serious canola disease in Western Australia (WA). While it has the potential to cause severe yield loss, the good news is that it can be successfully managed.

Dr Ravjit Khangura from the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) is an expert in this area, and advocates an integrated disease management approach. Dr Khangura joins Deb Bishop to discuss blackleg management tactics and GRDC resources that are available to help WA growers combat the disease.
