2013 International Clubroot Workshop

The 2013 International Clubroot Workshop will bring together a global network of leading researchers and academics to exchange information and research results about all aspects of clubroot. This forum is the culmination of the Clubroot Risk Mitigation Initiative, a successful federally funded research program which brought together leading clubroot researchers in Canada to focus solely on this disease. This meeting will look at the practical challenges encountered with respect to clubroot and the solutions which can be adopted to promote sustainability in canola production.

The meeting is being held in the vibrant city of Edmonton, Alberta and immediately follows the 2013 Annual Meeting of the Canadian Phytopathological Society. Edmonton has many attractions to offer visitors. Please find out more about Edmonton by

The 2013 International Clubroot Workshop is a two day workshop with a reception prior to the workshop and a farm tour after the workshop. Participants can choose which events they would like to attend. Workshop participants will learn about the latest in clubroot research and management which can be incorporated into regular protocol. There will be speaker presentations and poster presentations. A field tour and a post-workshop excursion are also planned.
