What is Clubroot?

prepared by CANOLA COUNCIL OF CANADA 400-167 Lombard Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3B 0T6 Phone: (204) 982-2100 Toll-Free: (866) 834-4378 admin@canolacouncil.org Clubroot is a serious disease of canola and other crops in the family Brassicaceae. Once established, it can lead to swollen, deformed plant roots that restrict water and nutrient uptake, resulting in premature ripening or plant death. Clubroot is caused by the soil-borne pathogen Plasmodiophora brassicae, which shares some characteristics of a fungus, an amoeba and a slime mold, making it challenging to control. Preventing the introduction of the pathogen is critical, however management is possible. We have a good understanding of it, tools to help control it and research that continues to advance both.
