Evaluate the infectivity of the most important Plasmodiophora brassicae pathotypes on a suite of canola with 2nd generation resistance. Determine the pathotype composition on 2nd generation clubroot resistant canola recovered from commercial fields. Assess the cross-infectivity of these pathotypes across 2nd generation clubroot resistant canola cultivars.
