A test for the presence of Verticillium dahliae in soil which causes Verticillium wilt in many plant species.

Verticillium wilt affects a number of plant species and accounts for significant crop losses globally as it causes dieback of the plant and the leaves to wilt, curl or discolour. It thrives in temperate climates and it's distribution can be sporadic within fields. Before planting your crop it is important to understand the risk of this soil borne fungal disease as an infection will significantly damage crop yield.

This test is one of a range of important tests for soil-borne pathogens. See the full range here.

More Information

Verticillium and Fusarium species are soil-borne fungi that can survive for extended periods in the absence of a host plant by producing resilient resting structures. Species commonly causing vascular wilt diseases of plants are Verticillium dahliae, Verticillium albo-atrum and host-specific strains of Fusarium oxysporum.
