There is no quick way to know what race or how many blackleg races you have in your field - most fields have several races present. Products with strong adult plant resistance provide peace of mind.
Adult plant resistance: Protects against multiple races of blackleg and is strong and durable resistance over time. Adult plant resistance can provide more durable product performance in situations where selection pressure for overcoming resistance is increased (e.g. high canola frequency in rotations).
Seedling resistance: This resistance protects against only one race of blackleg. Seedling resistance is all or nothing.
