The PGRO operates a plant clinic for pea and bean growers for the diagnosis of crop disorders, pest and disease problems.
Basic diagnosis of most issues and any remedial recommendations are free of charge to levy payers.
The plant clinic diagnosis request form and instructions to ensure samples arrive in the best possible condition can be downloaded here:

Samples of plant material are best gently wrapped in some damp tissue inside a plastic bag. Refrigerate them overnight if not able to post the same day.
To ensure we have the best chance of seeing the plant material in the best condition, please try to avoid samples arriving at the offices on a weekend.
Any accompanying images of the plants or the crop in general should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject title “Plant Clinic”.
Please make sure you include your name, address and contact details so that we can collate the images with any samples you have sent us.
