Plant Clinic Closing Information

September 6, 2000

Schoolís back in session, plant growth is slowing down, crops are beginning to dry down, and clinic help is leaving, so it must be time for the Plant Clinic to close for the winter. That is exactly what will happen September 15, which is the last day of operation for this year. Any samples that arrive by that date will be completed, but nothing new will be started after September 16. This is a firm deadline because there is no one to process samples after that date. We will once again open May 1, 2001, ready to face another exciting year of new challenges.

If you have a plant problem after the closing date, contact your local Extension office. Extension personnel or others who need help from a specialist can contact the following specialists for telephone questions. Do not send samples to these specialists unless instructed to do so. There is no lab service after September 15.
