Mar 15, 2017 - May 15, 2017
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is consulting with the public on a draft Pest Risk Management Document (RMD) on Verticillium longisporum, a fungus that affects a number of crops in the Cruciferous plant family, including canola. The RMD was posted to the CFIA's web site on March 15, 2017. Comments will be accepted until May 15, 2017 to help determine whether the CFIA will regulate this fungus. Verticillium longisporum poses no risk to human health or food safety but has been associated with reduced plant yield and quality in some countries. In late 2014, Verticillium longisporum was confirmed for the first time in Canada, on a farm in Manitoba. In 2015, the CFIA collected soil and plant samples from nine provinces: British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. Verticillium longisporum was confirmed in six provinces: British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec.
