Clubroot Fine Increase

Year: 2020

Number: 2-20A

Department: Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture

WHEREAS the ramifications of the clubroot disease affect surrounding land, equipment purchases, agriculture-related businesses and future generations of farmers;

WHEREAS these ramifications are numerous and beyond measure;

WHEREAS the value production and/or sale of the land is much more significant than the penalty of $500.00 for not reporting the disease;

BE IT RESOLVED that SARM lobby the Ministry of Agriculture to increase the $500.00 maximum fine for those that do not report clubroot to the municipality to 25 per cent of the land assessment in order to keep the reporting of clubroot controlled, data up to date for surrounding farmers and businesses and to avoid the spread of clubroot to surrounding land.
