Healthy fields. Healthy yields
Brassicas are susceptible to diseases like Clubroot (Plasmodiophora Brassicae), Fusarium Wilt (Fusarium Oxysporum), and Sclerotinia (Sclerotinia Sclerotiorum Symptoms).
Clubroot affects brassica crops including Cauliflower, Cabbage, and Brussel Sprouts across the globe. The disease stunts and slows growth, causing leaves to turn yellow from wilt during the day. It also affects the roots via swelling, distortion and substantial gall formation.
Fusarium Wilt most commonly affects cabbage, though other members of the brassica family aren’t spared either. The disease causes dulling and discolouration of leaves, stunted plant growth, browning and defoliation.
Sclerotinia is a fungus that shatters pods and reduces pod sets. Appearing as a small black structure, these attach themselves to decomposing plant portions. The fungus takes shape as irregular gray lesions on leaves and white-gray lesions on stems, and can survive for several years without treatment.
