The UF-IFAS Plant Diagnostic Center and Rapid Turfgrass Diagnostic Service are closed December 12-January 3. Samples received by close of business December 11 will be processed before the lab closes. Please hold off on sampling or sending samples until January. During this time, diagnostic or building emergencies should be texted to the lab director at 352-871-5156.
8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday-Friday; Closed weekends and UF holidays*
**Our after-hours sample drop-off cooler is always ready for your samples, even when the lab is closed. In-person delivery works best, or you can indicate to a courier that they should leave the package in the cooler. Make sure the package does not require a signature. We do not recommend that you use the US Postal Service; they will not deliver after-hours, on weekends or during UF holidays.
As a University of Florida laboratory, we follow UF’s closure schedule. We also close for the last two weeks of December to close out samples, bookkeeping, and projects.
