Faye Dokken, Provincial Specialist – Plant Diseases with Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture is looking for cooperators to participate in a canola disease survey this summer. Representatives from the Ministry would like permission to enter canola fields and collect a soil sample (for clubroot screening). While at the field, representatives will also take note of other canola diseases that may be present. Interested producers can contact Faye at (306) 787-4671 or Faye.Dokken@gov.sk.ca.
In Manitoba a similar disease survey is also planned, so interested co-operators in that province can contact Anastasia Kubinec (Oilseed Business Development Specialist, MAFRI) at 204-745-5645 or Anastasia.Kubinec@gov.mb.ca or Dr. Debra McLaren (Scientist, Crop Production Pathology, AAFC) at 204-578-3561 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
