Since it’s inception in 1989, the Insect and Plant Disease Diagnostic Lab (IPDDL) has served over 25,000 citizens. Inquiries arrive in the form of walk-ins, phone calls, e-mails, and regular mail. The clinic operates year-round and offers diagnostic services to the public. Services include plant disease identification, insect and insect injury identification, and nutritional and cultural problem assessment. Maine’s potato IPM program also makes use of the clinic for aphid identification as well as disease assessment. Funding for the clinic is obtained through commodity groups and special grants.
