Grant available to help four nurseries get systems approach certification
The Oregon Department of Agriculture is making grant funds available to help up to four nurseries join the United States Nursery Certification Program (USNCP). Four Oregon nurseries have already joined the program, which allows participants to self-issue phytosanitary certificates for Canada-bound material. Participants must adopt the systems approach, which is spelled out in the OAN-produced Safe Procurement and Production Manual. For details on how to apply and participate, read the full story on the OAN website.
