I have always admired small farming communities for their ability to pull together to solve a problem using a unique blend of hard work, cooperation and “can do” attitude.
As clubroot has spread across the Prairies in the past few years, I believe it has become one of those problems that we will all need to work together to manage and correct.
Your level of familiarity with clubroot likely depends on where in Western Canada you live. While it has been on the radar of farmers in Alberta for over a decade, many growers in Manitoba and Saskatchewan have only recently become aware of this serious soil-borne disease that has infested thousands of fields across our canola-growing regions.
