2016 Clubroot Survey

near Edmonton, AB.
The Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture is planning their annual canola disease survey. Part of the survey involves soil sampling and DNA-based testing for the presence of the clubroot causal agent. The DNA-based testing detects the clubroot pathogen at levels lower than those required to cause visible symptoms in the field, providing an early assessment of disease risk before yield loss due to the disease occurs.

If you would like a field tested for clubroot as part of the Ministry’s survey at no cost, please email with your name, phone number, RM and Legal Land Location.
