Posted on Tuesday May 07, 2019 at 03:39PM
Please be aware that the Lamont County Agriculture Service Boards has amended and approved updates to Policy 6056: Control of Clubroot Disease in Canola.
The policy has designated thresholds for disease presence of Clubroot in Canola. If over 10% of the pulled plants exhibit symptoms of clubroot, a Notice will be delivered from the Alberta Agricultural Pest Act; if under 10% of the pulled plants exhibit symptoms of clubroot, the landowner will receive a Lamont County Pest Notification.
The revised policy states:
5. With a positive test and a total infestation below 10% of pulled plants, a “Lamont County Pest Notification” will be delivered to the producer with the following restrictions.
iii. Clubroot inspection map with positive and negative survey results will be made available via hard copy, website, or upon request once the map is developed.
v. Sanitation procedures should be created as per the Alberta Clubroot Management Plan when leaving a land infected with Clubroot
2. Step 2 – remove any residual contaminated soil with a pressure washer or steaming unit using a 5% bleach solution
