Our pathology and nematode screening offers an affordable way of diagnosing diseases for both commercial growers and smallholder farmers. We can screen all parts of the plant including the leaves, roots, fruits and stems, and can diagnose a wide variety of different fungal, bacterial and viral diseases including leaf spots, root rot diseases, mosaic viruses, cankers and wilt.
