The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is advising the public that it has made changes to the area in the state of Idaho that is quarantined to prevent the spread of potato cyst nematode. The description of the quarantined area was updated on June 27, 2008, when nine fields were released from designation as quarantined areas and four fields were added as quarantined areas. The nine fields removed from the quarantine are located in Bonneville and Bingham counties; the four fields added to the quarantine are located in Bonneville County.
