Plant Diagnostics Lab

Diagnostics Lab The USU Extension Office diagnoses plant problems and identifies insects, arachnids and weeds. Bring healthy and diseased plant tissue samples, or insects in a jar. Common problems can be diagnosed on the spot. Uncommon problems need to be sent to the USU plant pathology lab in Logan at the cost of $10.

Soil Testing

It is a good idea to have your soil tested every couple of years to see which nutrients your soil needs. Information on how to get your soil analyzed can be obtained at the Extension Office or at (click on Forms and then Soil Test).
