Producers taking part in the Top Notch Farming Meetings this month are learning more about the spread of Clubroot in the Province.

Barb Ziesman, the Province's Plant Disease Specialist, says confirmed visible symptoms of the disease in forty-three commercial canola fields from seven of twenty-two crop districts.

“There are RM’s where we detected either clubroot or the clubroot pathogen across a large area of the northern agricultural region. When producers are looking at the Clubroot Survey Map it’s important to understand what the map is actually telling us. It’s giving us an estimate of the regional risk across the Province. So, just because we haven’t found clubroot in your RM doesn’t mean it’s not there.”

More information on Saskatchewan’s Clubroot Survey Map is available here.

Ziesman was one of the presenters at Friday’s Top Notch Farming Meeting in Swift Current

Top Notch Farming meetings are set for Tuesday, February 12 at the Kerry Vickar Centre in Melfort, Wednesday, February 13 at the Uniplex Convention Centre in Humboldt and Thursday, February 14 at the Town Hall in Davidson.

Top Notch Farming meetings are presented by SaskCanola in partnership with Saskatchewan Agriculture, SaskBarley and the Canola Council of Canada.
