  • How to Prepare Your Samples

  • - Samples should be approximately 6" in diameter across with three inches of soil.

    - It's important that the sample include both affected and healthy turf, so collect at the outer margin of the affected area.

    - if you plan to ship the sample mail or parcel service, wrap it in aluminum foil (not in plastic).

    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 lab manager Kurt Hockemeyer at hockemeyer@wisc.edu.
