Clubroot Project

With funding from Growing Forward 2, through the Growing Actions program, the Pest Surveillance Initiative (PSI) has been mapping the incidence of clubroot within Manitoba on a township-range basis. PSI is collecting samples from all township-ranges in Manitoba to establish broad-spectrum information and maps on incidence of clubroot.

Glyphosate Resistant (GR) Kochia Project

A single glyphosate resistant (GR) kochia plant can produce ~14,000 seeds. While seed longevity is poor, seeds can spread by wind, water and equipment. Rapid identification of resistant plants is key to containing and slowing the spread of GR kochia bio-types into new fields.
