Farm Bill 10007 Highlights - National Clean Plant Network

The NCPN protects U.S. specialty crops from harmful plant pests and diseases and ensures the global competitiveness of U.S. producers through high standards for clean plant programs.

The Bureau of Citrus Budwood Registration produces disease-free trees for growers and nurseries. Its close location to citrus production in central Florida is convenient for serving nurseries, though it is challenging to be near a high concentration of disease vectors. National Clean Plant Network (NCPN) Farm Bill funds helped the Bureau convert its greenhouse to provide a safer, more secure facility and better protect the clean nursery stock it offers to Florida citrus growers.
