Disease and Insect Control

Developing strategies for the correct diagnosis and treatment of crop diseases.

Agricultural Services manages pests and diseases that could have a negative impact on agriculture and farming operations within the Municipal District. Initiatives include:

Pest and disease inspecting

Yearly monitoring of insect populations to identify population cycles that may affect crop yields and monitoring of crops to identify diseases, such as Fusarium graminearum, Blackleg, root rot and Clubroot.

 

Clubroot of Canola is a fungus that causes large galls to form on the roots, which then restrict the transport of water and nutrients to the above ground parts of the plant.
The spores of clubroot can stay alive in the soil for up to 20 years and can be transported with any amount of soil that is moved.
