The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has completed all potato cyst nematode (PCN) soil sampling and testing for the 2011 seed potato crop, and PCN was not detected.

Over 44,000 soil samples were collected and analysed as part of Canada's 2011 national
PCN detection survey. Through the continued support of Canadian seed potato growers and other stakeholders, the CFIA tested approximately 78 percent of the 2011 Canadian seed potato production area.

The Government of Canada is committed to working with stakeholders to protect plant health and ensure continued market access for Canadian seed potatoes and other potentially affected commodities.
