As we slowly but inevitably enter the Minnesota growing season, the Plant Disease Clinic (PDC) is happy to announce that we are still open and ready to help! The PDC is housed on the St. Paul campus of the University of Minnesota and since 1956 has provided plant disease diagnostic service to MN growers as well as those outside the state.

Along with disease diagnosis we will pass along the current management recommendations for the diagnosis. We can currently receive samples by mail or by pre-arranged no-contact drop-off. For further description of services, list of fees, mailing address and other submission instructions please consult our website at
