Good News! We once again have a test back for Garlic Bloat Nematode that is Negative.

Dear Doug:


This is to let you know that we received the garlic sample that you send to our Bloat Nematode Diagnostic Laboratory and it was examined and processed for the possible extraction of the Garlic Bloat Nematode (GBN).  


The good news is that we failed to recover the GBN from the tissues processed from this garlic sample.  The bulbs included looked normal.


I hope the above is helpful and thanks for your submission to our laboratory. Best wishes,
