Clubroot - Overview

Clubroot is a soil-borne disease of canola, mustard, camelina, brassica vegetables and related weeds. Currently the distribution of clubroot in Saskatchewan is limited, which puts the province in a good position to take actions to minimize its spread and severity and its impact on the Saskatchewan canola industry. Clubroot is best managed when detected early and using an integrated approach that includes extended crop rotation, clubroot resistant varieties and prevention activities.

In 2009, clubroot was declared a pest under The Pest Control Act. Rural Municipalities (RMs) have authority under The Pest Control Act to undertake prevention and enforcement measures related to the spread and control of clubroot. The Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture is committed to a farmer-driven approach to clubroot regulation and to working with RMs to develop effective and consistent management plans. This approach to clubroot management encourages the producer to take an active role in the management of any clubroot confirmed on their farm. The Saskatchewan Clubroot Management Plan, developed in consultation with the Saskatchewan Clubroot Initiative, outlines the minimum science-based requirements that should be included in a clubroot management plan for infected fields in Saskatchewan. 
More information on clubroot, clubroot identification and management, the Ministry’s clubroot surveillance initiatives and the Saskatchewan Clubroot Initiative can be found in the following documents:
