Easy Steps

Each service package is designed to enable monitoring for spores through leaf emergence, flowering, grape development to harvest.

When you receive your Spore trap, set it up as soon as possible so that you can start sampling the air in your vineyard.

The unit contains two rotating collection sticks, these sticks need to be replaced and received by Fera, using the return envelopes provided, on Thursday by no later than 5pm for testing.

When we receive your samples they will be analysed using DNA based detection methods and you will receive your results via email within 3 days of receipt.

Once you have placed your online order please disregard the automated sample submission form email. We will email your order confirmation and further information separately.
