Diagnostic Clinic Open for Sampling

Soil Testing & Pest (Weeds, Insects & Diseases) Identification 

The Diagnostic Clinic is still open on a part-time basis, as an essential support to growing your fruits and vegetables, as well as your ornamentals.

Monroe County is fortunate to have this Clinic – not all counties have one. Liz Berkeley has staffed ours for the past 20 years. Her vast knowledge and experience can help you with soil samples or pest identification and treatment of weeds, insects and diseases.

CCE-MC is here to help you get the most out of your growing experiences and encourages you to get outside and consider growing something new this year! 

Plant, insect and soil samples should be left in a drop box located on the side porch of our building at 2449 St. Paul Blvd., Rochester 14617. We cannot accept samples sent through the USPS or express delivery services at this time. 

Intake forms and bags will be available on-site. Make sure the sample has your name and any other identifying information clearly marked on the bag or box.

Payment of diagnostic services during COVID-19 will be by:

  • Cash (prepaid)
  • Check (prepaid)
  • Invoice - Only for Commercial Landscape Businesses
  • NO Credit Cards or online payments will be accepted at this time.

If you need to talk with the diagnostician, email Liz Berkeley at eab11@cornell.edu
