Steps to access service
The most important step tocontrolling a plant disease is first to identify what is causing the disease. Unless the disease organism is accurately identified a control method cannot be suggested. Also some plants may simply be exhibiting symptoms of a nutrient deficiency, since the symptoms are similar to those of some diseases.
The outcome of the investigation is dependant on the condition of the plants or samples submitted. The client will be contacted with the diagnosis as well as any recommended chemical or other treatments as necessary.
Please feel free to call and enquire about results if necessary. If the sample cannot be used or further investigation is necessary then a site visit can be arranged.
