NMSU Plant Clinic Assists with Pest Identification

Spring has sprung and the plant are growing! If your plants start to look stressed, test, don't guess! Symptoms alone are usually insufficient for diagnosis, because they are not specific to the causal agent. Proper identification is important in developing management plans. The NMSU Plant Diagnostic Clinic is here to help. We can assist with disease, arthropod and weed identification. Submission of samples for diagnosis is facilitated through the County Extension Agents. Check here for the location of NM County Extension Offices
