Welcome!

The Plant Disease and Insect Clinic diagnoses plant problems for farmers, growers, landscapers, homeowners, and gardeners. In consultation with expert faculty, we recommend ways to treat or prevent the problems we diagnose.

We work in partnership with the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service, whose county offices can diagnose many common plant disease and insect problems. They can help you to properly collect and submit a sample to the PDIC, if necessary. Follow this link to find a North Carolina County Extension Agent or Extension Master Gardener Volunteer external link near you!

Navigate to "How to Submit a Sample" if you need our help.

WINTER REMINDERS

Happy New Year from the PDIC! Outdoor pests and pathogens are dormant, like this cedar-apple rust gall, but you may still have samples to send. If so, remember to package them well, especially if outdoor temperatures are below freezing. This is particularly important for greenhouse crops which could be damaged by cold in transit.

Please note that we will be closed on Monday, January 21, 2019 in observance of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday.
