Grain Growers of Canada urges all farmers to participate in the campaign by sending letters to your MP. Click the button below to go to the website (and click their 'Get Involved' button to take you to the 'click and send' letter template).

Bacterial and Halo Blight in Western Canada

At this time, it is unknown how the incidence and severity of bacterial and halo blight is/will be on the Western Canadian oat crop. Therefore, we advocate for seed testing that includes disease screening in addition to vigor, germ, and cold tolerance. If bacterial and halo blight are a concern in your growing area, it is best practice to use clean, disease free seed, and plant under warmer soil conditions. To learn more about bacterial blight please click the button below for a link to the video from Suncrest College (formerly Parkland College) and NARF. In addition, a link to a picture of confirmed bacterial blight in oats is provided.
