Eurofins Seasonal Vineyard Survey

With life expectancies of 80+ years, grapevines are a long-term business investment. To care for them properly, it is important to pay close attention to the organization of your grapevine mother blocks and certify that your planting material is free of any known or detectable pathogens.

We offer seasonal vineyard surveys that combine state-of-the-art testing methods with on-site consulting from our leading expert pathologists. Working closely with you in the field, we discuss your specific testing needs, recommend sampling strategies to more accurately detect the presence of pathogens in spite of low concentration or erratic distribution in the vine, and provide field or nursery operation inspections to assess grapevine health. We also offer training sessions for personnel to collect samples for testing.
