Plant Disease Clinics
The Plant Disease Clinics provide diagnostic support for county and area Extension personnel and the residents of Georgia. Our services include analysis of plant material and soil for bacterial, fungal, viral, and nematode pathogens as well as suggesting appropriate control measures when available. Our clients include Extension Educators, Growers, Retailers, Arborists, Golf Courses, Researchers, and Homeowners.
The Plant Disease Clinics work very closely with the UGA Cooperative Extension county offices. If there is an office near you, you may want to contact them for assistance with your plant disease problem.
Please follow the instructions for submitting samples carefully. The diagnosis of a sample that was improperly collected, packed, and/or shipped and arrives in poor shape is very difficult.
The clinic is a facility of the Department of Plant Pathology at the University of Georgia. This alliance allows the clinic to maintain a strong connection with the leading researchers in the field of Plant Pathology.
The clinic provides accurate plant disease diagnosis, quick turn around time, professional services, and up-to-date control recommendations.
