Clubroot Scouting

August 28th – September 30th

Yellowhead County Pest Inspectors will be scouting for this disease in canola and other Brassicaceae fields from approximately Aug. 28th to Sept. 30th. Scouts will be taking all possible preventative measures to limit the spread of the disease. This disease spreads primarily by soil movement from infected fields to non-infected fields through farm machinery, vehicles, and OHVs (Off-Highway Vehicle)s. It may also be spread by wind and water erosion. Equipment sanitation is essential to prevent the establishment of clubroot.

Please see for more details or contact the Yellowhead County Agricultural Department at the Wildwood Office (53404 Rge Rd 92A) or call toll free: 1-800-814-3935.
