UConn’s Plant Diagnostic Lab services are available for professional growers, home pest and plant problems, and the green industry.
Send images with a description of the host plant, symptoms you’re seeing, and any relevant site history (date of your last soil test, number of affected plants, planting date, etc.) to PlantDiagnosticLab@uconn.edu.
Master Gardeners staff plant clinics at every UConn County Extension Office and the Bartlet Arboretum in Stamford. Contact your local UConn Extension Center for more information.
The standard fee for all samples submitted to the diagnostic lab is $20.00 per sample. The standard response time is 3-7 business days after the sample has arrived in the lab. Some samples may take longer depending on the pathogen.
A few tests require additional fees (i.e. some virus tests). You will be contacted for approval prior to any tests requiring extra fees.
