Fusarium Surveillance Project

Fusarium Surveillance Project

As part of the federal government’s Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP), ASP launched a 3-year project in the fall of 2020 to study fusarium seed infection in Alberta to better understand how farmers can manage, control and prevent the devastating disease. 

The success of the project is a result of collaboration with value chain partners. ASP is collaborating with three Alberta seed labs, including SGS Canada, Seed Check Technologies and 20/20 Seed Labs, to gather data. Dr. Michael Harding, Research Scientist – Plant and Bee Health Surveillance Section of Alberta Agriculture and Forestry reviewed the data and created maps. Alberta Wheat & Barley Commissions supplied further agronomic and management input to the project. 

The project is made possible with funding from the CAP program, which is a five-year, $3 billion investment by federal, provincial and territorial governments to strengthen the agriculture and agri-food sector and ensure its continued innovation, growth, and prosperity.
