Reporting clubroot infestation early provides valuable information and plays a useful role for mapping infested fields in Saskatchewan. Both producers and field agrologists can help identify the distribution and severity of clubroot in the province.
Monitoring and mapping the spread of clubroot is key to successful adoption of proactive on-farm management. The clubroot monitoring program includes ministry surveys, volunteer soil testing and external reporting. The key to managing clubroot is to keep spore levels as low as possible to minimize yield losses. The program is used to update the Saskatchewan Clubroot Distribution Map.
