Mississippi State Plant Diseases & Nematode Diagnostic Services
The MSU-ES plant disease and nematode clinic provides detailed, accurate, and timely analyses of soil and plant samples. The clinic also serves as the Mississippi Department of Agriculture-Bureau of Plant Industries (MDAC-BPI) regulatory plant pathology lab. On a national level, the lab is a member of the National Plant Diagnostic Network (NPDN). NPDN was established in compliance with the homeland security initiative. NPDN protects U.S. agriculture by detecting high consequence pests and pathogens that have been introduced into agricultural and natural ecosystems.
