As of January 2023, Colorado State University Extension (CSUE) in Jefferson County has closed its on-site Plant Diagnostic Laboratory in order to align with Colorado State University’s (CSU) state diagnostic processes. CSUE Jefferson County’s Horticulture team will continue operating as do CSUE offices in other counties, by performing sample intake and diagnostic assessments for local residents. However, any commercial samples or samples requiring further diagnosis or laboratory work will now be sent to CSU’s Statewide Plant Diagnostic Clinic, found at the CSU SPUR campus.

While we’re so excited to have the expertise and resources of the CSU Plant Diagnostic Clinic close by, it will be a bittersweet moment to close the doors of our advanced laboratory after all these years. To celebrate its impact and service to the community, read more about the lab’s history and future here.

To send samples directly to CSU’s Plant Diagnostic Clinic, you can visit their webpage for instructions or you can contact them directly:

Keeping ahead of COVID-19

This rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) has imposed an unsettling, fluid situation upon our community and its businesses. While the team here still aims to maintain a “business as usual” approach, we are making a number of significant changes to our operations to account for a situation that is far from normal.
