Many growers struggle with plant diseases that impact crop quality and overall yield. Our scientists can identify the disease(s) ailing plants with our USDA- and CDFA-permitted plant tissue and soil tests, and provide programs specially tailored to combat the root issues.
Seed-borne diseases and poor seed quality cause significant crop losses. Sunburst’s seed health and quality testing provides growers with the information needed to ensure maximum crop yield. We can identify a number of infectious diseases, and also provide viability, vigor, moisture, and genetic purity tests.
Grapevine diseases, many of which have negative effects on grape production, are a source of major concern for vineyards throughout the country. We help grape growers and nurseries identify causal agents and develop programs to improve vineyard sustainability.
Our major focus is diagnosing the root causes of pathological, entomological, physiological diseases and disorders in agricultural plants, and providing programs that will remedy the identified problems.
