  2. Angular leaf spot (Xanthomonas fragariae) - Option 2
    Angular leaf spot is a disease in strawberries caused by the bacterial pathogen Xanthomonas fragariae.
  3. Cereals: Barley mild mosaic virus and Barley yellow mosaic virus
    Barley yellow mosaic virus and Barley mild mosaic virus are pathogenic viruses which cause yellow mosaic disease of winter barley.
  4. Chrysanthemum stunt viroid (CSVd)
    Test to identify Chrysanthemum stunt viroid (CSVd) within your plant sample. This viroid is known to cause stunting and premature flowering within some cultivars.
  5. Foliar nematodes from plant material (excluding bulbs)

    Many plant species are susceptible to infection by foliar parasitic nematodes, leaf and bulb nematodes (Aphelenchoides spp.) and stem nematode (Ditylenchus dipsaci).

  6. Tomato virus diagnosis screening
    Screen for a range of tomato viruses on symptomatic plant material via ELISA.
  7. Crown Gall Disease (Tumor-Inducing Plasmid) Testing
    A test for Rhizobium radiobacter (formerly known as Agrobacterium tumefaciens), which is responsible for crown gall disease in plants. The bacterium enters the plant through wounds in roots or stems and stimulates disorganised tissue growth, producing swollen galls.
  8. 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.
  9. Identification of Trichoderma aggressivum on compost
    Test for Trichoderma aggressivum, which can infect and colonise healthy, productive mushroom compost. It causes compost green mould in Agaricus.
  10. Standard growing on test for virus in Potato (PVY)
    This growing on test takes six to eight weeks where tubers are grown on in the glasshouse and subsequently tested for various PVY strains and any specific viruses as requested using ELISA.
  11. Rapid direct tuber test for virus in Potato (PVY)
    This rapid direct tuber test includes Potato virus Y (PVY) as standard.

    Further viruses are available for an additional fee. These are Potato leaf roll virus (PLRV) and potato viruses PVA, PVV and PVX.

  12. Tuber blemish diseases: visual assessment (% coverage)
    Our experts undertake a detailed visual assessment of your samples to report a percentage coverage of various tuber blemish diseases including: silver scurf, black scurf, skin spot, scab and black dot
