  1. Diagnose My Crop Problem
    We understand that every case is different and often you may not know the likely cause of the problem. For these cases we offer an examination of your sample by our crop health experts to assess the most probable cause.
  2. Scab testing: powdery (Spongospora) & common (Streptomyces)
    Powdery and Common scab both are potato blemish diseases that cause unsightly scab like blemishes on the tubers which in turn result in the tubers being rejected or downgraded.
  3. Black Rot - Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris - Brassica
    Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris, more commonly known as black rot, can be found across a range of host plants, infecting all cultivated Brassicas. This includes cabbage, cauliflower and mustard varieties.
  4. Pea bacterial blight - Pseudomonas syringae pv. pisi - Pea seed
    Test for Pseudomonas syringae pv. pisi, more commonly known as pea bacterial blight. Infection causes water-soaked spots which may coalesce into larger lesions.
  5. Soft Rotting Bacteria (average tuber inoculum load)
    This test provides a total count of soft rotting bacteria in potato tubers.
  6. Xanthomonas hortorum pv. carotae - Carrot seed
    Xanthomonas hortorum pv. carotae, more commonly known as the bacterial blight of carrot.
  7. Tomato root mat disease (Root-inducing plasmid) testing
    A test for Tomato Root Mat Disease caused by Rhizobium rhizogenes, a gram-negative soil bacterium that contains root-inducing (Ri) plasmids which can lead to over-abundant growth of roots in tomatoes and cucumbers.
  8. Potato wash water test - Total count of soft rotting bacteria (Pectobacterium and Dickeya spp.)
    An overall count of soft rotting bacteria in potato wash water.
  9. Potato brown rot & ring rot (Official EU Protocol) - Ralstonia solanacearum & Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. sepedonicus
    This test is to detect the presence of Ring Rot and Brown Rot in potato tubers.
  10. Bacterial canker - Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. michiganensis - Seed
    Detection of the pathogenic bacteria Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. michiganensis in tomato seeds.
  11. DNA sequencing of 16S rDNA or housekeeping genes
    DNA sequencing of 16S rDNA or housekeeping genes can be performed to identify bacterial isolates to a species or pathovar level. Testing can be performed on fresh isolates sent in to our labs or as an additional service to identify bacteria isolated from a sample sent in for testing.
  12. Pantoea stewartii subsp. stewartii - maize seeds
    Test for bacterial wilt caused by the bacterium Pantoea stewartii in Maize seeds.
