K-State Research and Extension has the resources to help you grow your plants in the diverse and challenging Kansas climate
Do you have a specific problem?
Our office is ready to help. You may bring in soil (for soil testing), turf, tree, weed, and insect samples to our offices for evaluation. Suggested treatments or solutions will be provided by Central Kansas District horticulture agent Jason Graves.
If you bring a plant sample, please bring a representative sample of the plant, preferably with several leaves on a branch or stem, including flowers, fruit, or other distinguishing characteristics. For lawn samples, bring in a 3" diameter core, including roots.
Pictures are very helpful in diagnosing plant problems. Bring pictures in with the sample or email pictures to email@example.com. Multiple pictures are needed: close ups of the specific problem, a picture of the entire plant and if possible a picture of the environment around the plant itself.
