Alasco is an exciting clubroot resistant variety that offers very high, stable seed yields; significantly greater than Archimedes or Mentor. It also has a very high gross output. Alasco has an excellent disease resistance profile combined with the valuable trait of pod shatter resistance.
Clubroot resistant varieties are resistant to the clubroot pathogen. Once receptors in the plant detect a pathogen attack, resistance genes trigger the shutdown of infected cells to block the spread of the disease.
