White rust or stag head in canola crop

Stag head or white rust is a fungal infection that can be observed wherever canola and mustard are grown. The symptoms primarily seem like white, blister-like pustules on the leaves or stem and eventually turn brown to black. The spores of fungus survive in soil or seed and result in less production of the crop. For measurements, grow the seeds free from the white rust pathogen. Practice a three-year or longer crop rotation and also strict sanitation of weeds. Monitor the crop regularly and remove the infected plants. In case of severe damage, spray the solution of Metalaxyl +Mancozeb is most effective.
