Plant Health Clinic
The Plant Health Clinic, located in Fayetteville, Ark., is supported by the Cooperative Extension Service, (CES), as part of the Division of Agriculture. The clinic serves Arkansas growers, homeowners and nurserymen who have plant disease problems or other plant health issues. Each year, the state diagnostician identifies and diagnoses diseases on thousands of samples – everything from row crops to fruit trees, ornamentals and even turf grass.
Currently, Sherrie Smith, serves as Plant Diagnostician. Smith began her career at the Plant Health Clinic in January 2006 after completing her M.S. degree in plant pathology at the University of Arkansas. The Clinic is under the direction of the Plant Pathology Department Head, A. Rick Bennett.
