10) National potato survey comes back clean

Potato wart

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) found no traces of potato wart in its 2023 National Survey for Potato Wart.

The CFIA collected more than 2,000 soil samples from every province except Newfoundland and Labrador, and found no evidence of the potato wart pathogen, Synchytrium endobioticum.

Clean fields are crucial to the success of Canada’s potato sector, which is the fifth largest primary ag crop in the country, and worth about $3.4 billion in exports.
