- What factors are constraining my canola yield?
- How can I identify the constraints?
- What else could the constraints be?
- Where do the insects/diseases/symptoms occur?
- How can I manage the constraints?
- How can I monitor the constraints?
- Where can I get expert help?
This Canola Diagnostic tool allows you to identify in-crop constraints (such as pests, diseases, soil deficiencies, environmental factors or management) on your canola crop.
The tool asks you what symptoms you can see and uses a process of elimination to give you a list of constraints that may apply to what you have identified.
An extensive image library also allows you to compare symptoms against photos.
You can then read more about the constraints and how you can monitor and manage them.
- Growth stage: before or after head emergence
- Symptoms you can see:
- leaf or stem symptoms
- root or crown symptoms
- plants affected in patterns or particular parts of the paddock
- more insects or bugs in the affected area
The tool tells you the constraints that may apply to what you have identified on the crop and in-paddock.
Fact sheets for each constraint (67 in all) give you information on:
- what to look for to properly identify the constraint
- other constraints with similar symptoms
- how best to manage the constraint
- how best to monitor the constraint
- where to seek expert help

The Canola Diagnostic tool is an output of the MyCrop project, jointly funded by DAFWA and the Grain Research and Development Corporation.
The MyCrop project aims to help you and your advisors diagnose limits to achieving potential grain yield.
