Latest survey maps out clubroot detection in Saskatchewan fields

by

The Government of Saskatchewan has released the 2022 Saskatchewan Clubroot Distribution Map, which outlines the rural municipalities (RMs) where clubroot has been identified.

Clubroot is a destructive soil-borne disease of canola first identified in Canada near Edmonton, Alberta, in 2003.

Saskatchewan has been surveying and testing for clubroot for several years, and has just released the latest map showing where detection of the pathogen has been found, with and without visual symptoms in-field.

Over 500 fields were inspected in the 2022 survey. Farmers and agrologists were also invited to receive a free soil sampling kit with Sask Canola covering the cost of the analysis. Thirty-nine samples were sent in under this program.

Of the fields surveyed, two fields with visible clubroot symptoms were recorded and clubroot was detected in four new fields. To date, visible clubroot symptoms have been confirmed in 82 commercial fields while the clubroot pathogen has been detected through DNA-based testing in 42 fields where there were no visible symptoms.

All producers with visible clubroot symptoms or fields with the presence of the pathogen have been notified. The specific land locations are kept confidential and not shared publicly to protect the producer’s privacy. Land locations are only shared with the appropriate rural municipality if they have clubroot-specific bylaws enacted and visible symptoms have been confirmed.

Clubroot is a declared pest under The Pest Control Act.
