Services

Laboratories of Mycology and Plant Virology perform diagnostic services in the area of plant pathology, such as:

  • Identification of plant pathogens using microbiological and molecular tests;
  • Technical support and prescription of preventive and control measures.

MATERIAL TESTED

We perform diagnostic analysis of plant pathogens present in: plant material (root, stem, leaves, fruits, flowers and seeds), soil and water.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR MATERIAL COLLECTION

Collect the samples, identify them (identification of the crop and collection date) and store at 4 ˚C until they arrive at the laboratory.

Samples should be delievered at the Laboratory of Plant Virology (ICAAM, Universidade de Évora), phone +351 266 760 852.
