This project features:
  • Soil testing using more sensitive qPCR analysis suitable to detecting the presence and amount of clubroot that may be present in your soil.
  • A pest map that outlines the rural municipalities that I have been identified as having positive test results for Clubroot.
  • Kochia testing for glyphosate herbicide tolerance.
  • The Biosecurity Calculator reflects content found in the Producer Guide to the National Voluntary Farm-Level Biosecurity Standard for the Grains and Oilseeds Industry. It is a series of 21 questions in 6 categories and will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.
