U.S. Plant Quarantine Programs

The United States does not have a centralized government plant quarantine system. Instead, expert plant pathologists with proper containment facilities and approved protocols are issued permits by APHIS to manage quarantine programs for specific crops. Plants for propagation requiring quarantine, but that can not be processed elsewhere, are imported on behalf of the requestor by the USDA-APHIS Plant Germplasm Quarantine Program (PGQP) in Beltsville, MD.
