Four Fields Added To Manitoba's Clubroot Tally In 2020

The province has compiled clubroot disease numbers for 2020.
 
Dane Froese is an Industry Development Specialist (Oilseeds) with Manitoba Agriculture.
 
"We didn't see a lot of new cases in 2020 for clubroot in Manitoba, however that isn't to say we couldn't find any," he said. "Every year there seems to be a number fields that crop up for whatever reason. Either a tight rotation, or a farmer that's just being more vigilant or environmental conditions that trigger a response."
 
He notes we saw a total of four fields with clubroot symptoms added to our total tally in 2020.
 
Two of those cases were in municipalities that were previously not identified as being clubroot positive with symptomatic fields. Those being the RM of Roblin and the RM of Alexander.
 
The total number of fields with signs of clubroot disease is now 39 across the province in 10 municipalities.
