Alberta Deregulates Fusarium

Alberta is moving to keep fusarium in check by means other than the “zero tolerance” policy it has in effect on agricultural pests such as rats, rabies and clubroot.

Agriculture Minister Devin Dreeshen announced a ministerial order Wednesday to remove Fusarium graminearum from the list of pests covered by the Pest and Nuisance Control Regulation, which is attached to the province’s Agricultural Pests Act.

Removing fusarium from the regulation “will allow Alberta to modernize to managing the disease, rather than having zero tolerance for it,” the province said in a release.
