Clubroot confirmed in northwest Saskatchewan

August 29, 2017
By SaskCanola
“We’ve been advised that one new field in the northwest region of the province is heavily infested with clubroot,” says Janice Tranberg, executive director of SaskCanola. “In response to this finding, SaskCanola is working with the Canola Council of Canada and the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture to reinforce producer awareness of the clubroot management fundamentals.”

Producers in Saskatchewan should not assume that clubroot is not already in their community or even on their farm. When the pathogen arrives via soil movement into a field it is often unnoticed for the first couple of years, especially if producers are not looking for it. Once the clubroot pathogen is introduced into a field or community, growing susceptible crops can increase clubroot spores, which can eventually lead to visual symptoms, yield loss, and reduction in the durability of clubroot resistance.
