In 2021, the PDDC continues with limited hours and limited sample processing capacity due to COVID-19. Click here for the PDDC’s current submission policy. The PDDC is continuing to provide diagnoses through examination of digital photographs, although in 2021 there will be a fee for this service. As in 2020, digital diagnoses will be included in the Wisconsin Disease Almanac. For Almanac entries below, when a digital diagnosis would normally require a lab confirmation, the disease/disorder will be labeled as “suspected”. The following diseases/disorders have been identified at the PDDC from August 7, 2021 through August 13, 2021.
|Apple||Fire Blight (Suspected)||Erwinia amylovora||La Crosse|
|Cherry||Cherry Leaf Spot (Suspected)||Blumeriella jaapii||Monroe (IN)|
|Raspberry||Cane Blight||Paraconiothyrium fuckelii||Polk|
