Predicta Pt soil testing

AuSPICA field staff are trained and are fully accredited by SARDI to collect soil for testing and provide technical advice in relation to the results issued from the SARDI pathogen DNA testing service known as Predicta Pt.

The SARDI DNA soil tests available are for pathogens that cause the diseases powdery scab, black dot, eel worm. Other DNA based soil tests in development are for common scab, Verticillium and Rhizoctonia. The tests measure the particular pathogen load in soil which is used to estimate the disease risk of a given soil sample allowing appropriate management strategies to be recommended to mitigate disease risk in potato crops.

More info on the diagnostic testing is available at SARDI
