Test your soil for clubroot
Clubroot management begins with knowing what you are dealing with on your farm. Let us help you determine your baseline!

SaskCanola is covering the cost of one clubroot test ($100 value) for Saskatchewan canola farmers. Farmers can call (306) 975-0262 & SaskCanola will mail you a soil sample survey kit or visit your local Ministry of Agriculture regional office to pick one up.

SaskCanola has invested $170K in 2019 to test soil samples for the clubroot pathogen across Saskatchewan - read full news release here
