Disease & Pest Monitoring

Each season, Agricultural Services participates in four provincial surveys: Grasshopper, Fusarium Graminearum, Clubroot and Virulent Black Leg. In addition to this participation, Agricultural Services will participate in timely surveys on behalf of the Provincial Governments Pest Surveillance Branch. If you see Big Lakes County staff out in the County collecting bugs, plant samples or other data, rest assured that strict sanitation protocols are in place. Booties are put on prior to entering a field and removed upon exit and County vehicles do not enter fields. If you have any questions regarding these surveys, please call Agriculture Services at 780-523-5955
