Clubroot update planned
Clubroot continues to spread in Central Alberta, with a number of new infestations reported this year — including four in Red Deer County.
The county will provide an update on the situation this Thursday at 12:30 p.m. at Penhold Memorial Hall. Those in attendance will also hear about management practices and new clubroot resistant varieties, with presentations by Keith Gabert, an agronomy specialist with the Canola Council of Canada, and Kelly Turkington, an Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada researcher at Lacombe. Seed industry reps will also be on hand.
The event is free, with coffee and desserts to be served.
