How to Report Clubroot in Saskatchewan

By Raul Avila A.Ag, M.Sc., Crop Production Intern, Crops and Irrigation Branch

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.
