Learn about plant pathology and submit your diseased plant samples for diagnosis at our bi-weekly summer booth.

Every summer, the U of A Plant Pathology graduate students and faculty table a booth at the farmers market to provide free plant disease diagnosis and education to the Fayetteville community!

Bring pictures and physical samples from your diseased house plants, lawn, trees, and garden plants for us to evaluate and diagnose with the assistance of the Plant Health Clinic. They love to see children at their booth, teach them how to use a microscope, and tell them all about plant pathology.

The Plant Pathology graduate students can be found on East Avenue in front of the Pryor Center from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on June 2, 16, and 30; and July 14 and 28.
