Initial assessment typically includes visual examination of your sample by our plant pathologists to assess the most probable cause and appropriate method of testing (please be aware this does not include screening for viral pathogens). In the event of more than one probable cause (e.g. bacterial and fungal) or further specific testing being required we will contact you to discuss any additional work and costs.

We will normally report back to you within 5 working days of receiving your sample for the diagnose my plant problem, giving our initial examination findings and if appropriate, a time-scale for completion of the work.

Bespoke tests are available on request, please contact us on +44 (0)300 100 0322 or via the Crop health team: crophealth@fera.co.uk

A 'sample' is defined as a unique unit sent in for examination of the same problem. A unit can be a single item (plant, plant part, soil, insect, etc.), or multiple items of the same variety, taken from the same location and exhibiting the same problem. In the case of plants or produce, a sample should comprise 2 or 3 items showing a range of symptoms along with a couple of healthy looking items for comparison. Entirely dead material should not be submitted for testing.
