Where can I get a soil sample tested for verticilium wilt? Do you have an idea of the cost of the test?

Normally we test plant material for verticillium wilt, not the soil itself. Here is a link about this persistent virus:

Here is a link to our diagnostic lab. While I don't see soil testing on this particular site you could call them and see if they will do that:

And here is our soil testing link:

I hope this is helpful. Please contact AaE again if you have further questions.
