Submit your digital sample
via our new app!

The Plant Diagnostic Sample Submission app is a joint effort with 8 universities to provide a way to easily submit digital images of plant problems or pests on the go. Available for iOS. The Sample Submission App is free but normal sample processing fees still apply for samples submitted via the app. Check the PPDL's list of services and fees. Contact your preferred lab for details on their fees.
