Farm Bill 10007 Highlights - Safeguard nursery production

A new nursery certification approach ensures cleaner plants and easier interstate commerce.

Farm Bill funds supported the Systems Approach to Nursery Certification (SANC) pilot program, which brings together the National Plant Board and nursery industry groups to promote a harmonized approach to nursery and greenhouse certification. This audit-based program improves the sanitation processes at nurseries and unifies standards for the interstate movement of nursery stock. Long-term benefits include reduced pest risk, improved cost efficiencies, and more direct interaction between nurseries and regulators.
