DIAGNOSTICS CLINIC OPEN!!
We are pleased to announce that the GTI Diagnostics Clinic is NOW OPEN to serve your needs. After a temporary closure due to COVID restrictions on the University of Guelph campus, we are excited to get back in the lab to help out turf managers struggling to identify biotic and abiotic stressors on their properties. This has been a challening year with drought, heat, humidity coupled with some excessive rain events. We expect submissions to be quite high over the coming weeks.
Be sure to check out our updated site because there have been some changes to costs, clinic schedules and submission procedures. Click here to head over to the GTI Diagnostic Clinic page.
Please note that all samples MUST be mailed in for the time being. In order to protect yourself and our campus community, no samples will be collected in person.
As a helpful reminder, please ship all submissions via same day delivery and be sure to get a tracking number. In order to expedite service and accuracy we also request that you include any photos of the symptomatic turf and surrounding environment. In many cases, pathogens are present in samples, but not actually responsible for the daamge observed. Clues from the surrounding environment and field obervations will help our staff to more accurately determine your issues.
We look forward to serving your needs!
