Spore counts are based on randomly chosen paddocks throughout the district, with grass samples supplied on a regular basis. The grass sample is cut from grazing height at several points throughout the sample paddock so as to give an accurate count. 

 

If you would like to check the spore count of a particular paddock or area you can bring a sample in to us at either our Opotiki or Whakatane clinic. You need to provide at least 60g of grass cut (not pulled up) as low to the ground as possible without getting any soil in the sample. Make sure to include grass from several different parts of the paddock. The grass should be supplied in a clean, dry bag. You can expect to receive the result of the spore count within 24 hours.
