This spring we launched a new soil test for Verticillium Wilt in oilseed rape (see attached) with an introductory price of only £210. Verticillium is now an established pathogen of oilseed rape in the UK. It causes the crop to senesce prematurely and can result in yield losses of 20%. We can also test for Verticillium Wilt in seed.

NIAB LabTest has a new webpage, with easy access to information and prices on our wide range of seed, grain, soil, quality and plant tests. Price increases have been kept to the minimum with some of our single disease tests dropping in price for 2015. Our single bunt test is now £45.00, down from £66.40 in 2014. Our packages combine the most popular tests and still offer good value for money.

NIAB LabTest staff can advise you on the most suitable test, check on sample progress and help interpret a test result. Contact us on 01223 342243 or email labtest@niab.com.
