Annual Clubroot Survey Results

September 25 marked the completion of the County’s annual clubroot inspection, where regional fields are checked for visible symptoms of clubroot on canola plants.

Thank you to all producers who participated in the annual inspections! Lac Ste. Anne County is endlessly impressed with our producers’ ability to prevent the spread of this soil-borne crop disease. At this point, anyone with a confirmed field should have received the news already; either contacted by the County or by the landowner of the property.

If you wish to confirm whether your field was found positive, click below to view the 2019 clubroot map or grab a copy at the County office. Alternately, your property’s status can be confirmed with a quick call to Ag Services at 780.785.411 or email to AgServices@LSAC.ca.
