Vegetable Samples for the SW Purdue Ag Center – Vegetable Crops Hotline

Vegetable Samples for the SW Purdue Ag Center

In a normal year, vegetable growers may drop samples by the SW Purdue Ag Center in Vincennes Indiana for problem identification. However, this is far from a normal year. Due to concerns about the coronavirus, SWPAC is closed to walk-in visitors. We do not know how long this situation may last.

We have devised an alternative method of dropping off samples that will avoid face-to-face contact. Follow these instructions to drop off samples.

  1. Contact Dan Egel or Wenjing Guan before stopping by or attempting any drop off (see contact info below)!
  2. There will be a sign on the front door with instructions about how and where to drop off a sample. Do not try to enter the front door.
  3. When leaving the sample, include as much info as you can about the sample. You will be contacted as soon as possible about the sample by phone or email.
  4. Leave only Indiana samples!

If you have a sample to send, you are encouraged to send it instead to the Plant Pest and Diagnostic Laboratory (PPDL). The PPDL can also accept out-of-state samples. We are in close contact with the PPDL about vegetable samples.
