BBRO Plant Clinic

Support service to UK sugar beet growers.

Do you need help in identifying or confirming an issue in your sugar beet crop?  

We have facilities at our Norwich laboratory and glasshouses for microscopic investigation, germination tests and virus detection.

We would recommend that you submit at least one plant with the surrounding soil and if possible some photos of the surrounding area.

A plant clinic form must be sent with each sample.
