Canadá: No potato wart found in 5,000 samples tested on Prince Edward Island by CFIA

With testing completed on 5,000 P.E.I. soil samples collected by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency from March to June no potato wart fungus has been found, as Kevin Yarr reports for CBC News.

CFIA collected more than 17,000 soil samples from March 5 to June 30 and testing on those samples continues. One sample with potato wart was found among about 3,500 taken from Oct. 7 to March 4.

The testing began after potatoes from two quarantined fields were found to have potato wart in October 2021.

The discovery prompted an export ban for table potatoes to the United States that lasted from November through March, cost the industry tens of millions of dollars and led to the destruction of hundreds of millions of pounds of potatoes.
