Sclerotinia Stem Rot or White Mold of Canola (Oilseed Series)

Sclerotinia stem rot (Sclerotinia sclerotiorum), also known as white mold, can be a very destructive disease of canola. In the canola-producing areas of Canada’s prairie provinces, as well as the midwestern and southern United States, Sclerotinia can be a major issue. Although the occurrence of Sclerotinia in the Pacific Northwest is minimal, it can cause extensive damage in infected fields.
