Plant Clinic Closing-It's That Time Again!

August 29, 2001

It's hard to believe that the summer is nearly over, but there's no stopping it. The University of Illinois Plant Clinic is a seasonal operation. We close for the fall/winter on Friday, September 14--still time to send in that nagging plant problem or a sample of a declining plant that has been bothering you. Samples received by September 14 will be completed, but nothing will be started after that date. This is a firm deadline. We will open May 1, 2002, ready to face another exciting year of new challenges.

If you have a plant problem after the closing date, contact your local Extension office. If you are the Extension personnel or otherwise need help from a specialist, the following persons may be available for telephone questions. Do not send samples to these specialists unless the specialist requests them. There is no lab service after September 14.
