Diagnostic Lab

The Turfgrass Pest Diagnostic Lab provides rapid diagnostics of turfgrass diseases, insects and weeds for commercial turfgrass managers throughout the World. Our goal is to provide quick and accurate diagnoses and pest control recommendations where needed.

This service is designed for managers of high quality turfgrass such as athletic fields and golf courses. The primary difference between our service and other similar services is a rapid turnaround time and the direct involvement of turfgrass diagnostic experts. For this reason, it is always important to call ( 814-863-0918) PRIOR TO SENDING samples to make sure that the lab is accepting samples.

The price is $125 for disease samples and $65 for insect and grass/weed ID samples. These fees cover a prioritized diagnosis within 24 hours of receiving your sample, a full diagnostic report with information on the diagnosed pest(s) and any control recommendations, and access to trained turfgrass experts to answer any questions you may have.
