What is Clubroot?

Clubroot is a serious soil-borne disease of canola, mustard and other cruciferous crops in the cabbage family. As the name suggests, the disease forms club-like growths on the roots of infected plants, which ultimately results in reducing crop yields and quality. Clubroot is especially problematic because the pathogen persists in soil for many years and cannot be controlled with crop protection products currently registered in Canada.
