Canola School: CanoLAB Brings the Field Indoors

It’s one thing to know that you should be scouting for blackleg, sclerotinia, sulphur deficiency and cutworms, for example. It’s another thing entirely to actually scout every field for every pest at the optimal timing during the hectic growing season. What if there was a way to practice insect, disease and nutrient deficiency identification when you’ve got more time, like, say, in winter? Well, there is. The event is called CanoLAB, now in its second year at St. Albert, Alta., and this year has expanded to include a Brandon, Man., and Saskatoon, Sask., event.

Interested? There’s still time to participate in the Brandon, Man., event (it’s being held tomorrow!) and the Saskatoon, Sask., event (click here).
