Foundation Plant Services at UC Davis provides such a service -  - 

let us know how this works with your patent application - I doubt it will 
substitute for any of the phenological observations that are required, but if 
they allow it to remain as part of the application I don’t see the downside to 
having it in the record - it’s labor intensive and a bit frustrating to have to 
use the form developed nearly 100 years ago to demonstrate the uniqueness of a 
variety when we have this technology that can do it definitively and cheaply -
