Aphanomyces and Fusarium root rots of pulse crops

Root rots of field pea and lentil causing wilting and death of mature plants have become a serious problem for pulse producers in recent years. Field surveys indicate Aphanomyces and Fusarium root rots are widespread in Alberta and Saskatchewan, but that pathogen composition and root rot risk differs between soil zones.

At the 2017 Field Crop Disease Summit, Dr. Syama Chatterton, a research scientist with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, will present results from these field surveys, along with a discussion on weather and risk factors contributing to Aphanomyces and Fusarium root rots of pulse crops.

The event has been approved for 12 CCA-CEU credits.
