The Auburn Plant Diagnostic Lab services are offered to Alabama citizens and those neighboring Alabama in an effort to safeguard our agriculture, landscapes, and public gardens from plant pests by providing identification services, management advice, and education. The lab is dedicated to minimizing pesticide use by accurately identifying plant pests and providing science-based options for management. The lab is committed to detecting new and invasive pests that pose a risk to Alabama and to the United States so these pests do not impose significant limitations to agricultural production. Specific services offered include plant disease diagnosis, insect identification, nematode analysis, and plant/weed identification.
