Digital Photo Tips

Our diagnoses are much more accurate when we have good photos!

  • Photos must be in focus. Check the photos before you submit them.
  • You can send up to 10 photos/sample.
  • Include a size reference in the photo. A coin or a ruler works well.
  • For plant disease or other plant problems, include images of the whole plant as well as close ups of affected area. 
  • For plant ID, include images of the whole plant as well as close ups of plant parts like flowers and leaves.
  • For insect ID, include host identification (for example, green ash). If the host is not a plant, describe environment of collection site (for example, kitchen windowsill, basement, bag of rice). 
  • Include as much information as possible. Host plant, collection date, collection location, planting date, age of plant, pesticides used, number of plants affected, patterns in the field, etc.
