There has been a confirmed case of Fusarium graminearum found in a “Clean and Disease Free” wheat seed lot sourced from Southern Alberta for spring planting within the Peace Region. 

Big Lakes County encourages all producers to test their seed lots prior to planting, especially if sourced outside the Peace Region. Let’s work together to keep fusarium out of the Peace Country and maintain our markets for high quality cereals.
