  • Method Used
    Visual Examination
  • Standard Turnaround Time
    10-14 working days

Plants infected become stunted with less growth and smaller fruit. The causal pathogen has the ability to survive in contaminated soil for long periods of time.

This fungus-like pathogen infects strawberries, infecting rootlets; causing the roots to rot from root tip upwards, leading to a characteristic reddening of the inner portion of the root. The pathogen can be introduced with infected planting stock or contaminated equipment.

This test is also available with visual examination followed by real-time PCR - please ask for details.

This test is for symptomaic/diseased plants to confirm the presence of strawberry red core within your sample.

If you want to screen healthy plants or soil for Phytophthora Fragariae please see Strawberry red core (Phytophthora fragariae) in plants (non-symtomatic).
