Clubroot, a disease of canola, has been found in the neighbouring jurisdiction, Big Lakes County. As a precautionary measure, the Agriculture Services Department is conducting clubroot surveys on canola within Greenview.
As er the Alberta Agricultural Pests Act (RSA 2000 cA-8, Section 22) Pest Inspectors have the ability to enter onto a field to conduct these inspections. If we are able to contact the landowner, we will attempt to.
We appreciate landowner cooperation in this matter. We follow all sanitation and inspection protocols as established by Alberta Agriculture. For Further information, please contact the Agriculture Services Department at 780.524.7621.
