Speaker Spotlight: Dan Orchard and Curtis Henkelmann

Dan Orchard and Curtis Henklemann will present on disease updates, reducing risk and practical management tips for clubroot at Top Crop Manager’s Plant Health Summit, to be held from Feb. 25 to 26, 2020, in Saskatoon.

Dan Orchard’s scouting led to the first detection of clubroot in Alberta in 2003, and he has since taken on the role of clubroot leader for the Canola Council of Canada’s agronomy team. During the Summit, Orchard will discuss ways to reduce the risk of introducing clubroot to your farm, how to keep spore loads low if it does arrive on the farm, and how to limit the disease’s impact going forward.

Curtis Henkelmann has been farming in a clubroot region and tackling the disease head on for over 15 years. During the Summit, Curtis will share tips on what he has been doing to keep clubroot under control and give advice on what works and what doesn’t work for clubroot management.

The Summit has been approved for 9 CCA-CEUs (CCSC-CEU approval pending). Take advantage of early bird pricing and earn credits in nutrient management, soil and water management, integrated pest management and crop management at the Plant Health Summit.
