Weed Identification

Weeds

If you are having trouble identifying a plant or weed, you may a bring a sample into our Extension Office. Plant specimens should be placed in a plastic bag (sealed or zip-locked). Collect the whole plant, if possible, including flowers, fruit, and root system.

For more information, visit the WVU Extension Service website on weeds.

Plant Diseases

WVU Extension provides disease identification service. You can download the WVU Plant Diagnostic Clinic Form below to submit a disease related sample for identification. Plant specimens should be placed in a plastic bag (sealed or zip-locked) and shipped immediately in a mailing tube or strong carton. Do not add moist paper or toweling in the plastic bag. Collect the whole diseased plants, plus healthy plant, if possible, include the roots. Collect more than one plant if they show various stages of decline. For plant identification, collect the whole plant, if possible, including flowers and fruit. You may mail the sample to the West Virginia University Plant Diagnostic Clinic, or bring it into our Extension Office and we can send it for you.
