Blackleg and Verticillium stripe Test
Free for MCGA Members.
Blackleg and Verticillium stripe:
Verticillium stripe is determined by visual examination of spore colonies generated from symptomatic stems and confirmatory PCR upon request.
PSI’s Blackleg test is in two parts:
- We confirm visually that the sample has Blackleg. If Blackleg is identified, we use a DNA based assay to determine the population of races present in the field where the sample was taken.
- If the sample is not Blackleg, we will refund 50% of the testing fee as the race test cannot be done. Follow the sampling protocol for best results.
