  • How to Prepare Your Samples

  • Samples should be:
    - Collected at the interface of the affected and unaffected turfgrass.
    - Approximately 6" in diameter (cup cutter size) and taken deep enough to include the plant's root mass.
    - Wrapped in aluminum foil and shipped immediately to avoid contamination and decay.

    If you enclose paperwork, please put it in a plastic bag so the moisture from the sample won't harm the paper.

    If you have questions about the sample submission process, please contact the lab.
