Crop Watch - Annual Field Surveillance Program

Agricultural Services is on the lookout for several diseases and pests common to regional crops

This summer, Agricultural Services staff be conducting seasonal crop surveillance activities across the County. Landowners are advised that inspectors are likely to enter fields unannounced due to time constraints and the sheer area of agricultural land that needs to be covered.

Rest assured that County crop survey crews will exercise extreme care when entering fields to minimize any potential spread of crop issues from field to field. Precautions include the use of disposable boots and/or disinfection with a bleach solution prior to entering any field.

Most landowners are familiar with diseases and pest issues that can affect the Lac Ste. Anne County region. However, the Agricultural Services department is always available to inform and advise landowners on these matters.
