Province declared PCN-free

THE Canadian province of Alberta has been deemed free of potato cyst nematode (PCN). 

With Alberta being the largest exporter of seed potatoes in Canada, this is a momentous occasion. The province being declared free of PCN is the result of a team effort between an affected farm, the Government of Alberta, Potato Growers of Alberta, Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP) programming and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).

More than $200,000 in Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP) Surveillance Program funding was dedicated to restoring the disease-free status and helped cover costs for farm inputs.
