The Clemson University Commercial Turfgrass Clinic is located in our upstate laboratory in Pendleton, SC. This service is provided to golf courses, athletic fields, sod farms and other turf management professionals who desire expedited diagnostic services.
For samples submitted with the Commercial Turfgrass form, we will make every effort to provide a diagnosis with management recommendations within 48 hours. In cases where isolations to detect pathogens are required, the initial response will most often be a preliminary report giving a suspected diagnosis and any other available information. In these cases, a final diagnosis, including management recommendations, will be provided as soon as diagnostics are completed.
