Editor's note
The following abstract describes a publication that is only available as a downloadable PDF.

The Plant Diagnostic Laboratory identifies the cause of plant diseases, as well as disorders caused by insects, herbicides, nutrient imbalances and many other factors. Sample submission to the clinic is often the first step toward identifying the cause of a plant health problem. The clinic also serves as the central clearinghouse for insect, plant and weed identification. The clinic works closely with MU Extension faculty to provide accurate and timely diagnosis and identification and to provide management recommendations. Management recommendations developed by MU Extension faculty reflect research-based results and an integrated pest management philosophy.
