I’m pleased to inform you that a new sample type, Mushroom/Fungus, has been added to DDIS.
Thanks to Dr. Matthew Smith for making this possible. Dr. Smith is a faculty in the Dept. of Plant Pathology, and he is a specialist in mycology and fungal ecology.
Your mushroom/fungus samples will be routed to him for assistance.
In addition to pests, plant diseases, plant ID, and crop management samples, mushroom/fungus is one of the important aspects in our diagnosis.
I hope you find this service valuable to you and your Extension clientele.
