APHIS - Farm Bill

APHIS - Farm Bill



The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is charged with implementing Section 10007 of the 2014 Farm Bill to prevent the introduction or spread of plant pests and diseases that threaten U.S. agriculture and the environment. Under Section 10007, APHIS provides funding to strengthen the nation’s infrastructure for pest detection and surveillance, identification, and threat mitigation, while working to safeguard the nursery production system.  Section 10007 includes the Plant Pest and Disease Management and Disaster Prevention Program and the National Clean Plant Network.

The open period for receiving these project suggestions closed on August 19, 2016, after a six week opportunity for stakeholders to submit suggestions.
