canoLAB is a hands-on, interactive diagnostic workshop with live plants and insects. Participants are divided into groups of 20 and will take part in eight 45-minute sessions. Instructors will be among Western Canada’s top researchers and extension people.

CCA and Pesticide Applicator credits will be applied for. The event is co-hosted by the Alberta Canola Producers and the Canola Council of Canada.
Topics include: Harvest losses, herbicide action and injury, fertility, genetics, insect damage assessments, temperature inversions, blackleg misdiagnoses and management, and much more.

Attendees are divided into small groups, so attendance is limited to ensure maximum instructor interaction.
