Diagnostic Centre for Plants

Dear clients, Even during the corona crisis, we are still operational and we remain at your service. We hereby assure you that we are taking all possible measures to safeguard our operations. Internal agreements have been made to ensure that sample receipt, analysis and reporting continue. Together with you we will do everything we can minimize the impact on primary production.


The Diagnostic Centre for Plants (DCP), part of Flanders Research Institute for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (ILVO), is the premiere laboratory for plant health in Flanders. Wherever the presence of a plant disease or pest is suspected, be it in plants and vegetal products, soil or water, samples can be presented to us for analysis. Samples originating in stored goods, residences or storage areas are also accepted.

ILVO participates International year of plant health
