Cotton Disease


Cotton Disease

Crown Analytical Services partnered with SARDI in 2011 to service their PREDICTA® B soil and stubble borne disease DNA test in the northern growing region. More recently, Verticillium and Black Root Rot strains have been identified and are now available for testing in cotton.

This service provides a simple and efficient testing process, where one soil sample can be analysed for multiple diseases. The list of diseases available for testing will continue to expand, with yield risk ratings being developed through research.
