Commercial Plant Clinic Information

Each problem sample submitted to the clinic must be accompanied by a completed "Plant Diagnostic Clinic Form” which can be obtained at the clinic or here. Problems that can be properly diagnosed visually from symptoms and background information supplied from the form will be handled during clinic hours. If samples need to be sent to Gainesville for further analysis, such as in the case of virus or complete soil analysis, appropriate forms will be provided and growers will be notified of any fees required for these specialized services. The county Extension horticulturist operating the clinic will network with the center faculty during clinic hours on an as-available basis.

If you have further questions, please contact Liz Felter at (407) 254-9200 for consultations.
