National Clean Plant Network – Fruit Trees


The National Clean Plant Network- Fruit Trees’ mission is to provide growers and nurseries with virus-tested propagation material to diminish the impact of fruit tree viruses.  We also test new varieties of fruit trees for viruses and other diseases so they can safely be introduced into U.S. orchards.

There are three NCPN-FT centers strategically place in regions where fruit production is most concentrated.
