Diagnostic Centre for Plants


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.
