The sustainability of the Canadian canola industry is our primary consideration when developing and deploying recommendations on the use of clubroot resistant hybrids. The use of genetic resistance is only a small part of a larger integrated pest management (IPM) strategy that includes:
Canola rotation of a minimum of once every three years
Taking sanitation steps to limit the movement of infected soil
Control volunteer canola and other brassica weeds that can act as hosts for the disease
Utilize patch management to limit the movement of clubroot on your farm
Scouting to identify the presence of the disease
Clubroot-resistant genetics are only effective as a sustainable practice if deployed as part of an IPM strategy and should not be relied upon as a single strategy to manage clubroot
A virtual tour with integrated pest management tips for clubroot management and the clubroot-resistant options from InVigor® hybrid canola.
Learn more about clubroot resistance technology from InVigor and the benefits it provides to fields where clubroot is a concern.
InVigor has a number of clubroot-resistant options to choose from in this year’s lineup. However, not all genetic profiles should be deployed in the same way. Learn how to effectively select between first and second generation genetics by using our handy clubroot-resistant genetics decision tree.
All InVigor clubroot-resistant hybrids have been developed to be resistant to the most predominant clubroot pathotypes found in Canada at the time of their registration.
InVigor L340PC, InVigor L345PC, InVigor Choice LR344PC, InVigor L255PC, InVigor L352C, InVigor L241C and InVigor Health L258HPC all share the same first generation clubroot resistance profile. InVigor L234PC has this resistance profile plus it contains second generation multigenic clubroot resistance to additional clubroot pathotypes to help combat evolving clubroot pathotypes. Second generation clubroot resistance is designed to combat clubroot in fields known to have clubroot and following two cycles of first generation clubroot resistance or until clubroot symptoms appear, whichever comes first.
Clubroot populations in the field can evolve or shift to new pathotypes that current resistant hybrids may be susceptible to. These new pathotypes may become dominant in the clubroot population if no additional integrated pest management approaches are taken and canola hybrids with similar resistance profiles are used repeatedly in the same field. To maximize the durability of genetic resistance in canola hybrids, use an integrated pest management strategy that includes extending rotations in areas where clubroot is a concern. We support the Canola Council of Canada's agronomic recommendations when growing these InVigor hybrids.
