The season is upon us and no doubt you’re busy in field, if you haven’t already sent your samples in to the lab it’s time to get strategic! See the graph above for upcoming BPC and Lab Closures and sample cut off dates.

Our suggestion is to keep your samples in the fridge over the weekend then get them to the lab as fast as you can, Express Post or drop off where possible. Time is limited to get them in the door to get your results before Christmas, and there may be extended turn-around times over this period to accommodate public holidays or priority testing for time-critical cotton petiole / plant tissue samples.

Many teams are operating on skeleton staff during Christmas and New Year including our own Back Paddock support crew, there will be a 2hr call back during this period.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out, or if you’re after any sample bags this is a great time to order online.

Have a safe and happy festive season.
