Plant Clinic Closed for Season

September 18, 2002

The University of Illinois Plant Clinic is a seasonal operation. The budget allows staff to be hired from May 1 through September 15 to handle the bulk of plant problems. Friday, September 13, was the final day for the 2002 clinic season. We will open again on May 1, 2003.

If you have a plant problem after the closing date, contact your local Extension office. If further help is needed from a specialist, Extension personnel can help direct you. The following specialists may be available for telephone questions, but do not send samples to them unless the specialist asks you to. There is no lab service after September 13.
