Botrytis Resistance Testing

Some of you already tried sending Botrytis samples to Clemson for fungicide resistance testing — only to find out that the service was no longer offered. However, Dr. Guido Schnabel will be conducting studies with the PROFILE system in early September, so he is volunteering to take Botrytis samples at this time — all free.  You could actually send swabs any time up till then, but fresher samples may be better if they are available in late August or early September.  See link below for instructions relative sampling and shipping samples.
