Calling for Fusarium bioassay We are excited to announce that we have been funded by Arizona Iceberg Research Council for our Fusarium bio-assay project. We will be doing the trials and standardize the protocols before we offer the service to the public. We, however, need your help with soil samples. Any places you see high pressure of Fusarium, please let us know. We need to collect soil samples. The location of the field will be confidential and will not be shared with anyone.
