Clubroot Management 

Photo by Valerie Sowiak*

The assessment and control of club root is becoming important for energy companies looking to site or route projects on agricultural land.  Clubroot is a soil borne fungus which can lie dormant for years and has recently gained a stronghold in Central Alberta agricultural lands.  The Clubroot fungus attacks the roots of crucifer-type plants producing disfiguring galls and has the potential to devastate canola crop production in particular, reducing yields by as much as fifty percent.  Municipal and Provincial authorities are increasingly looking to project proponents to limit spread of clubroot with management plans that require  soils testing, vegetation assessments and construction and post-construction mitigations such as equipment cleaning stations.

Ghostpine has the experience to help you prepare and implement a clubroot management plan.  We have worked on several projects which required the development of clubroot management plans, cleaning station (i.e., mechanical, chemical, and steam) inspections and clubroot testing. Contact our office if you have any questions about the potential for Clubroot infestations or management plan for your project area.
